I do plan on making a full build thread so others can hopefully learn from my mistakes. Before I do, I was hoping to seek some advice regarding the surface placement of the playfield TV in relation to the top of the cabinet. In most videos it appears that the TV sits closer to the surface at the lockdown bar and slowly dips as it progresses towards the back of the box. I do eventually want to put in a 5 rgb flasher or better yet a addressable LED matrix like randr or TerryRed have, so I want to make sure my height at the back is, at minimum, enough for easy implementation down the road.
What did you all do for vertical distances, and are you happy with them?

Mine is parallel to the glass, about 1″ down. But I don’t want/have those fancy lights or anything so didn’t need the space, and VP adds the depth with sidewalls on the screen so I thought those were redundant anyway.
