    Funny story. I was coming back to Canada from Montana and I had a number of parts shipped to me while I was down there. The border guy asked me the value of my goods and I said I just had $1000 worth of pinball parts. He asked if it was for personal use or a business. I told him personal hobby only. After checking out my passport he turned to me looking through his dark tinted sunglasses and smirked... He said "I don't mean to put you to shame but yesterday I had a guy with $4000 worth of pinball parts." Then he let me on my way.

    So who put me to shame last Wednesday with that amount of parts?

    He probably just had a WH20 topper, a couple Shadow rings, and that little metal piece that goes behind the IJ saucer.
