I thought the skill shot was tied to the bullet targets on the left of the playfield. You want the ball to hit the bullet target that is lit. I could be totally wrong on that though.

As for the bomb targets, I made a deflector to go above the targets to prevent airballs. I think the pin came with one orignally, but most don't have it. Here is an example of what I'm talking about.


I can take a pic of mine if you need a better view.

The deflector is just a plastic piece. I will try and take a close up pic of mine tonight. I used to get airballs all the time until I made my own using a piece of plexi-glass.

Finally got a chance to snag a pic.

Quoted from megalo17:

Thats well done! Thanks for the pic! When I free up some time I'll try to replicate. I've also got to look into the left out lane kick back. Sometimes it misfires. And the LW1 lane has started draining every ball it releases...

No problem. It was very easy to make. Lots of sanding to get the edges smooth.

I have the same problem with the LW1 kick out hole. I've taken to giving the machine a little nudge to keep it in play... sometimes it works lol. If you find a fix I'd love to know!
