Quoted from KSUWildcatFan:

Never a single issue for me, installed like this[quoted image]

I'm really digging the look of those clear pop bumpers. I recently ordered clear bodies and Skirts for mine. . Will install when I put in my hardtop soon.

I left the lighting as it was when I bought it--i really like those pops too!

UPDATE:
I super glued the wing with gel super glue overnight and found a mirror clip to give it additional support fingers crossed... I got lucky and found a mirror hanging clip that fit perfectly over the wing.The plastic mirror clip goes right over the cracked area and supports the front to the back Wing relieving stress on the crack. BONUS... the mirror hanging clip is clear plastic and beveled LOL. After playing only two games the last pic shows the nose cone has paint chipped on it now the ball is still getting airborne and it could be because of my ramp protector and that the screws are not countersunk. I also wonder if it could be hitting the drop Target and getting airborne has anyone else had problems with hitting the ball hitting the nose cone? What did you do to remedy the problem?

Mine was doing the same thing had to make a thin piece of plastic shim stock about .015 thick and glue it on top of drop target. the drop is probably sitting to low. Also check to see if there is an adjustment screw under the drop mech might not have one I do not remember.

The ramp protector looks nice, but if those screws are not flush. They may chew up your ball, everytime your ball passes over one. It'll create a little Nick in the ball that eventually will be like sandpaper on your play field and wear the play field art prematurely.

Yes I have definitely considered this as a problem I need to find some screws that will lay flat before I Nick the balls up you are very correct sir

Well, I did it. . Ordered a hardtop on Friday for my shuttle. , FedEx says it'll be here tomorrow. . Over the weekend I built a rotisserie. , and started the top side tear down today.

I'm on the hunt to join this exclusive club. If anyone is planning on selling theirs and bringing it to Pinbrew, Ohio in April, let me know!

What are the items on the left of the new playfield? Do they come with the new hardtop?

No the stuff off to the left did not come with hardtop, I've been accumulating over the last week or so. Clear pop bumper skirts and bodies, some blue inserts and some new lollipop targets, also blue. Thought while I had the table on the rotisserie It gives me an opportunity to upgrade a few things that have been," want to do's" for a long time.

I love love love clear pops on this game. I need to resolve an issue with the bulb socket on one of them on mine (it likes to cut in and out at times) but I think the clear caps and cool white LEDs looks fantastic.

I had the same issue with my pop bumpers. No matter how much I fiddled with the sockets on the inside, the bulbs would eventually work themselves loose, drove me nuts. It was suggested to me to swap them out with a wedge style socket if I ever reworked the pop bumpers. Last year, however, I replaced the single bulbs with one of those pop bumper clusters from comet, the additional wiring creates just enough tension to hold them in place and have never had to adjust them since installing.

All my Williams machines have a sagging backbox that bugs the sh!@ out of me. This was my 1-1/4" angle fix on the Space Shuttle, I'm sure there is other ways posted here over the years. I hope/haven't tried to lay the box down to see the clearance needed to fully drop it to the playfield. That could be a issue.

I don't think they'll be an issue with clearance, besides when the game looks that nice, you don't want to fold it up anyway. Really like what you did with the red white and blue lighting scheme.
