    Hey guys, Im pretty much a noob at this stuff but plan on starting a pinball collection after I finish my basement. I currently have a 1955 United Capitol shuffle alley, 4 player skee ball and a galaga that ive restored. My real interest is in starting a pinball collection after the basement is finished. I really got the bug after ForceFlows Saratoga pinball show. Ive already framed the walls and roughed in the electric. Ive also added a bathroom which was the most expensive part of this so far. I'm looking for any advice from you pinsiders that have gone down this road already.I know space is a premium but i just cant part with my 4 player skee ball. I should comfortably have room for 6-8 pins when finished, more if i can talk my GF out of a movie room. Tips, tricks, stuff you wish you did. Lighting tips. Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Jay
