    looking awesome John

    will there be 90's style backbox hinges or going for the 80's bolt on only?

    Quoted from swinks:

    I originally had the 90s style hinges on it, and the backbox and game ended up being so heavy I prefer removing the backbox entirely for transport, so I ended up going with no hinges.

    There are only 4 or 5 connectors to disconnect, so it's pretty easy.

    It's alive! It was early this morning and I didn't have the overhead shop lights on yet so the LEDs washed it out a little, but here is a short video. More to come!

    The flipper gap looks huge, is it a standard value?

    Wanted to give you all a heads up, some local buddies are coming over tomorrow night (Saturday the 29th) to playtest Spaceballs and we are going to try to live stream it on twitch.

    It's my first ever stream, so I have no idea if it will work. It will be at: https://www.twitch.tv/wolfmarsh

    We will try to start streaming around 8 or 8:30PM eastern time.
