    You keep saying that it is going slow. Ok, maybe. But, I can assure you that yours looks better than mine from the the inside at least ;-)

    Thanks for the kind words guys. My next step is breaking it down to router the aluminum led channels in now that I know were the tv sits. I am also going to router in wire slots under the sliding hinges on the pull out dof tray. Then glue and screw the cabinet back together and get ready for paint. After that I will move it to my basement in the house and do vinyl and finally assemble. Be a good project down there on the hot summer days when I am feeling lazy. :good:

    <p style=”padding-left: 30px;”>I haven’t posted progress in a while. I routed in LED aluminum rail channels that will run down with the TV. Also routered in led strips for the legs. They will then get covered with frosted leg protectors.20190506_22063120190511_151616</p>

    I primed my cab with an oil based primer, then let it dry for a week and lightly sanded it with 220 grit. Then painted it with Benjamin moore’s advanced cabinet paint. Dries really hard but tough to work with. They like 16 hrs between coats and 3 days dry for a hard finish to assemble.  I took my decals to the store and they scanned them for a color match. I just sprayed the purple tonight. It turned out great. Now for patience.  I am going to leave it alone for a week before I stick the graphics. :yahoo:

    Top notch. Looks like you’re building the vpin equivalent of a trailer queen.

    <p style=”padding-left: 60px;”>I got some more done. I tinted the led light channel covers with 20% tiny. Looks great. See how it looks when I finally get to the light show stage. They are recessed so the TV clears and pivots by.20190722_21421020190722_214228coin door now has molex conectors.</p>

    I got the blower fan mounted up. I put chrome automotive door trim around the top so little fingers dont get cut. Also put a screen inside.. I tried it out and it works great!!

    This build is mind blowing.  Do you work for (own?) a pinball company?  Is that you Gary??  Getting into VP?  Will love seeing a video of this when complete.

    Thanks Jr,  No pinball company here. I am Nathan from Montana. I am a locomotive engineer. This is my first pinball build. I have been studying and looking at these things for the last 5 years. I must have read and studied that pinball electrical 101, 20 times and looked surfed over and read so many builds. I am very hands on with old cars. Used to do auto body before working the rails. My carpenter skills are so so. I understand basic electricity and get scared with computers. Without this website and Google search, and many wonderful you tube videos from Ranr, Terry red and many others I would not have tried. Thank you all pinballers out there :good:</p>
