    Hi!

    New potential pinhead here. Trying to convince my wife we need to fill our living room with pinball machines. She thinks they should go in the garage. During the summer the garage probably gets up to about 120 degrees Fahrenheit (about 49 degrees Celsius). Is that too hot for a pinball machine? In the winter it gets down to about 40 degrees Fahrenheit. I am in the California Bay area. Do you think my temperature guesstimates are realistic?

    Thanks guys! I really appreciate the feedback. We already have two couches in the living room and no friends so I don't see what the problem is?? How hot can a pinball machine safely get?

    Thank you all! Especially you Pwedge since you are pretty close. Is there a "temperature" that would be bad? We live in a row of condos so I'm not sure if I could insulate the garage door. Although I do like that idea for both temperature and noise.
