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

Star Trek the Next Generation - Alt translite, Pinstadiums, Pinsound board & speakers, full LED, LED&GI OCD, custom topper, ColorDMD
Doctor Who - Alt Translite, moving Dalek(real one - not the cheap servo mod), new decals, new ramps, pinblades, full LED, Pinsound & shaker, LED&GI OCD, ColorDMD
Revenge from Mars(+SWEP1 pf) - Running RFM custom code v2.23 on Nucore, Mods: saucer LEDs, 6-ball trough, knocker, shaker. SWEP1 is original

Looking for:
Willy Wonka
Stern SW Prem/LE

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.

Where to begin. Well, I sat in my gameroom for an hour last night, contemplating the overcrowding. Recent developments have understandably kyboshed many plans, so I need to reassess space usage.

I am looking for a ground-level, heated storage space, but those don't come cheap. I did find a nice space literally 5 blocks away... but at 1025$ a month with all expenses, it would be hard to justify such an expense. I could use it as a shop, but if my day job gets crazy (like it often does), I am stuck footing the bill. It is not off the radar, as someone may want to partner up and split expenses, but not in the works yet. But this said, if someone wants to rent part of the space for storage, let me know... something can be worked out.

So, my work shed will now become a storage area. No more paint/clearcoat booth for now. Not the best idea, but my basement is overrun right now. And it makes it hard to complete game repairs as I am stuck shifting crap around all the time. Very time consuming.

First world problems. LOL

Over 1000 a month? Heck, building a bigger shop would be cheaper. Who needs a back yard anyways? :D
