I recently purchased a Space Shuttle that came as a depopulated playfield.
The previous owner had a ton of pics that have been super helpful in putting it back together. I am looking for 2 or 3 to help me out though if someone would be so kind. I am looking for a pic of the ramp with only the shuttle toy removed and one of the underside of the shuttle. Thanks so much!

Did you end up getting the pics?
Can you post them please.
I have the same issue.
Just got hold of a space shuttle, need to find out what is supposed to be underneath it and how it mounts
I don't have any of the hardware for it. I just purchased a shuttle and decals. What else do I need, and where can I get it.

If you still need some pics, pm me with details of what you need. I have a nice refurbished SS and would gladly help out with a few pics.

I really should get those uploaded somewhere they're publically available... ugh.

Here are the pics that I took of the ramp and underside of the Space Shuttle. The ramp itself does not have anything to do with the ballgate or related microswitch. Both of those are secured to the underside of the Shuttle itself. The wires come up through the playfield and attach to the micro switch. The Shuttle is secured to the playfield with two screws. They are painted color matching white and are located in the wing section of the Shuttle.

By the way, the wire form goes through the holes on the side of the Shuttle but the U shaped frame that the wire is attached to is just held in place with scotch tape. No rocket science here, just good old clear tape.

Excellent, your the man.
