I am stuck on creating a Lightbox for my Space Invaders Back GLass with its 3d glass. There are two pieces of glass that came out of the Pinball machine, the backglass with art work on it, and the slightly larger glass that goes infront of the art glass that gives the Pinball machine a 3d look. I recently purchased both pieces and want to build a light box for them, but not sure how to go about framing the smaller art glass behind the larger piece with an impression in it, to frame up the image on the smaller art glass. I am terrible at describing it, but I will add pictures of both pieces of backglass so you get clearer picture of what I mean. Has anyone here framed the glass from Space Invaders with both pieces of glass? Or, is anyone offering a service to create one I can pay for. Thanks

Similar to the "infinity lights" setup on my Xenon

the Gallery of images has a good shot of behind the Space Invaders glass ... held in by small plastic wire looms like

Here's some pics I snapped if they help:
