I finished installing and tweaking my WOZ mods. FINALLY!

They look pretty but they are a pain to install. The design is somewhat poor on a few (from the same vendor). Witch & flames... Having the optos alligned to make the flame effect work is impossible as designed. Had to mod the mod to make it work. ANNNND it kept rebooting. So it's now on a separate 12v power supply plugged in the service outlet (until I hook it up to the power switch). So for now I have to plug/unplug inside when I turn the machine on/off.

The crystal ball is super nice but what a useless design.. "Fully adjustable in many ways". Yeah.. but not when it's assembled and/or installed.. So what's the point.. uggh. Also they forgot to send me the screen bracket. At least they were nice enough to send me the file so I could print the part myself.

On a side note I received my pf protector from Germany yesterday. Gonna go on Dr Who when I finally get the chance to shop it and install the new cab decals. Gonna be nice. New decals, new side art, new ramps (all 3), pf protector. SOON!
Current Lineup:

PINS:
Medieval Madness Royal Edition - Mods: Merlin, Troll lighting
Stern Jurassic Park LE - Pinstadiums, Stern topper, stern amber shooter, mods: signs, watch tower, raptor pen, T-rex fence, pteranodon, and a few more

Jesus... so much to list.

I will limit it to this. I am playing a lot of pinball Tetris these days to move stuff around and store everything. LOL

Got my tumbler and ordered my ultrasonic cleaner.
I love my cleaner!!! I *cough* cleaned this game not long after I started the hobby and I was too timid to even take the posts off. Selling Spanish Eyes gave me easy access so I did a real clean up on it this time.
