    Thanks man!
    Here’s a prefit of the backbox back...we had to make a new underside of the backbox too...this backbox will be a littlebit wider in order to get dimensions right

    I bought somewhat thinner wood,the mansion structure will be self supporting like a building but it will become real heavy.
    The 2 heads will be situated up in the towers,the roofs are gonna be detachable from the back,that is where the heads are mounted to.
    So the roofs and the heads will become 1 assembly.

    The heads will be situated in windows over here.
    The backbox will be a detachable one with a connector and detachable hinges.

    Now we are gonna debate the rest and draw some.
    See you next week pinside friends!

    1 thing we are gonna change first,is this middle part of the mansion...if we take this part out,the towers feel even more majestic.

    Quoted from pinballrockstar:

    I bought some christine merch for my son for christmas..he is addicted to everything Christine

    It's settled then, pin #3 shall be christine. I know I read in some thread someone wanting that theme pretty badly. Would make an incredible bash toy if you were knocking balls into it, denting sections.. and then the car repairs itself.

    #2169 2 years ago

    That is an insanely cool theme right?

    #2170 2 years ago

    So i am cleaning up the shop a bit today and hanging stuff...and my mom came over...she gave me the “i did not raise you like this” lecture and started vacuuming the whole place.
    Little did she now all the good screws and bolts are on the floor.
    Need to empty the vacuum cleaner with a neo magnet fo sure now.
    But she is the greatest mom in the world,she is so good in organising...
    I am also very organised

    Same here. My mother lived to be 92 and she 'prodded', 'guided', cajoled me, and 'corrected' me her entire life. And I responded positively each time, because I knew she was trying to 'raise me right'. She was EXTREMELY helpful to me at time when I really needed her help. Be good to your Mom. You will only have one . . . and she knows what is best!!!

    I have been away from pinside for awhile and just stumbled into this thread. Cool stuff guys.

    Reminds me of the time I explored an old abandoned state hospital in Northville Michigan in the 90s. It was one creepy place. Not my video, but the same place.

    I seem to remember ingesting something magical while I was there once. It may have increased the creepy factor a little.

    Yeah,know what you mean Mike..mine is a treasure too...i am almost 42 and it is impossible to correct my ways,but she still tries!
    She is awesome,we often go to concerts and theatre together.
    Oddly enough we share our taste of music so we went to ZZtop,Neil Young,Alice Cooper,Joe Bonamassa,Joe Cocker,Status Quo,Walter Trout...name em,we’ve been there...
    Great to see her happy.
    Let the good times roll.

    Quoted from meSz:

    I must be going to False lumberyards then as here in PA ....... no drive-thru ...... HOWEVER we do have drive-thru beer distributors. Even some Drive-thru window beer places ..... drive up to the window and order case of beer and on your way!!!

    I found my first ever drive-thru petrol station. I don't really see the point as you have to get out of your car to fill up, and then get back in and drive to the paying booth as you exit. I thought the whole point of a drive-thru was so you didn't have to get out of the car at all?

    Here in the States you guys always start building while it's still during work hours here so it leads to the question ..... WTF are we supposed to do at work on Friday, work????

    The Friday before the Christmas probably isn't the most productive time in any office! rotordave has a new 'traveling in the USA' thread which could make for good Friday afternoon office-fodder...

    Hey guys,

    Been following this for a while and love the work that you do - really inspiring. Would love to have a go at building my own one day.

    I make new blinder mechanisms for TOMMY (see https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/another-tommy-blinders-repro) and would be happy to donate a set to your project if you can see a use for them - I thought that they could mabye turned into a flapping bat with a little of your creative know-how! Anyway, PM me if interested.

    Keep up the great work.

    Now, are you just shitting us or is this a real movie?! I actually tried to find it on Netflix and it says it doesn't exist.

    Yes!
    Maybe you can hook us up with a blinder mechanism that we can use as a blinder mechanism?
    I don’t want to make it into a bat?
    That mech is too awesome!
    Would be great for the crazy mansion.
