    I love seeing all the gameroom pics...

    I'm always surprised when I see people setting up their gamerooms in such a way that there's no room to remove the backglass. My 1980's Williams machines require 96" of horizontal space to exist. ~52" for the machine and ~44" more for the glass to come off. I call it the "8 foot rule." I would love to re-position my machines in such a way that I can get more in the game room and garage, but not at the expense of having to move 2-3 machines out of the way just to get 1 backglass out. Is there some trick I'm not aware of? I could imagine people creating removable side-rails... but... Who does that?

    I seem locked in to the "8 foot rule."

    What's the secret here?
