Hello everyone, Just wanted to introduce myself to the group as I have taken the plunge and have a nib Boss/Premium being delivered next week. I must say that as of a few weeks ago I wasn't planning on buying any pin, certainly not the Mustang. I grew up in the 70's and 80's loving and playing pinball. As the kids got older and the budget became more available, the Mrs and I talked about having a game room. Soon we will have the empty nest and relocate to a house with the proper space for the game room. We dont have the room yet for a full size game room but our basement is fully finished and is basically our family room. I also have a nice home office down there and that is where my new pin is going.

Before I started researching to buy a machine, I thought that it was difficult to buy a machine for home use and assumed that it was just arcades and bars that could get them. I was lucky enough to stumble upon this site and was pleasantly surprised with the knowledge, the culture and the passion that is in here.

The Mustang was not my first choice, but it will be my first pin. I was looking at Family Guy and AC/DC ( which will probably be my 2nd ). Both great machines with fantastic features but then I saw the Mustang and I started reading all of your posts and my thoughts changed. I am not a car guy, nor do I own a Mustang but I have a 1999 GT Convertible with 17k original miles in the garage. It was my wife's late husbands car and I am lucky enough to maintain and drive it. When I originally told her about buying a pin she was ok but not wowed. Then I showed her the Mustang and her excitement level jumped 100 times. Now the pin is personal, she will never sell that car and I am sure that she will never let me sell the pin either.

So I have you guys to thank for that. I have several other hobbies (motorcycle, guns, photography, skiing) and I take part in the various forums that support them, but nothing has come close to what goes on in here. This is what swayed me to go with the Mustang.

I have already ordered a few mods to start...Hooked's tach and shift plunger, Flipper Fidelity speaker/sub kit and I already downloaded pinball browser. I also ordered a few cars as well... yes , one of them is a silver 99 GT convertible. Very interested in the SmartDMD as well.

Looking forward to learning more and contributing when I can.

Quoted from MustangPaul:

Hey Welcome to the club you made a wise choice, I wish I could have afforded a Boss version but I'm happy with my Pro. Another couple of mods that makes the game look it's best are mirror blades, my leg light-ups, speaker lights with chrome Running Horse insignias and Pinsider "beatmaster" shooter housing light up. Make sure you take pictures of the game ON the truck, being unloaded and ALL sides once down on the ground. Once you sign for it it's yours. Enjoy your first game and let us know how it goes.

Thank you everyone, looking forward to learning and modding.

Paul, great advice on the pics on the truck. Where do I find the Beastmaster shooter light up? Havent seen that one yet.

Also, I am very interested in the SmartDMD for the Mustang. I reached out to pinball Mike and he is just too busy to make mods right now. I know that I could build it myself as they have documented the parts and steps nicely, but I just dont have the time. If anyone has done this please let me know. Might be an opp to make a few bucks to build one for me.

GAP, that is gorgeous....the yellow just makes everything POP!

Thanks guys for the welcoming comments.

Annnnndd now for my first dumb question.........

Cliffys? Is that the shooter/eject protector mod??? What about the switch protector for our machine? Or when we say "Cliffys" do we mean both?

Quoted from HOOKED:

Ah that pesky boost gauge....just figured out how it will work off of the insert...took a while.
Art work stalled but its back on track now...it will happen ...oh yes it will...lol.
Valve covers will be a simple bolt on to scale and 351 logo'd but it will be Feb.
Mustangs and I go way back so this is a mod labor of love for me.
I believe Boost gauge will be the last run of mods for this title for me....Unless I can figure out that start switch mod .

Hooked, where will the NOS boost gauge go on the playfield?
