Merci les gars! :) Ça fait du bien de pouvoir la montrer après ~6 mois de travail. Ya des moments ou j'ai trouvé ca rough...

Elle joue super bien en plus.

Je suis bien content des photos aussi, malgré que je comprend pas pourquoi ma light strip du fond a l'air de sortir "bleu" alors qu'elle est rose...surement le bounce de lumière et mon appareil mid range...

Avec mon drone. :o

Bin non, c'est moi grimpé sur une chaise, avec l'appareil à bout de bras.

Green compound c'est un truc pour faire shinner le métal, c'est assez cool. Je l'ai appliqué avec un Dremmel, après avoir mis les pièces au thumbler.

Blue gun c'est pour refaire le "bleu" de tes flaps. Ça sent le calis par contre, et le résultat est plus noir que bleu tant qu'à moi. Moyen content du résultat, mais j'avais pas de kit pour refaire les rivets. C'est tout de même mieux qu'un flap avec une trace de balle "grise" au milieu.

"Lift trim"; la trim en bas du translite, ce qui te sert à le lever. Mes 2 trims étaient fendu à cause d'une rampe qui accote quand le playfield est levé.
