Like others, I wanted my build here so this is Pasted from hyperspin but will update here too. :thrasher:OK, time to start my 10 year project. lol Thx to all the studs on here with their great builds, I hope mine can turn out just as nice. This is my first hobby project and first time being involved in threads and forums. I was scared to start something with no manual but I figured with so much support on here how can I go wrong. A lot of the parts list is what I want, not what I have. I will update this first page as I go if anything changes and as parts come in slowly. I have a short leash with the wife cause we have a two year old and another one on the way due in June. My goal is to have it done by the time they can reach the flippers ha ha.

Zebs (1) pair of Strobes Artwork:thrasher: Custom artwork by dfwArcade Printed by Lucian045 About a year and a half ago I was looking for a pinball machine for my father-in-law when I ran across a machine that said "100 games in 1" . I looked into it and found vpfourms, and hyperspin and its been all down hill from there. . I spent alot of sleepless nights, fights with the wife:girlshit:, no blood, alittle tears from staring at the computer screen:pcguru:, almost throwing the computer through the window and even stole:creep: my 6 month old kid's 26" TV off his wall (no more elmo). I thought this day would never come because it took me a month just to get all the files lined up to get a table to work in hyperpin:banghead:. Once I got one table running it was over, I have 102 tables on the wheel with all the images. I was happy with my little set up on the coffee table and everyone who came over was so impressed. I was playing Rolling stones and it hit me , Why dont they have a Metallica Pin yet? If Stern did make one, that would be my first NIB purchase. So I decided to make one myself with a little twist. What if i combined my two favorite artist: METALLICA and MICHAEL GODARD? If you dont know M.Godard, he is famous for his Martini/Wine paintings and making the Grapes/Olives come to life. Anything you are into he has olives doing it; NASCAR, rafting, strip clubs, horses, golf, poker, football, basketball, gambling, vegas ect.. He is the Rockstar of the Art world!! When you put the two together you get this: [/url and then after dfwArcade gets a hold of it, it comes out like this!! I tried to put as many album titles and names of songs as possible. If you know Metallica, it shouldn't be hard to see them. On the left side you have: From Whom the Bell Tolls Trapped Under Ice Ride The Lightning Battery Kill em' All Jump in the Fire King Nothing Fade to Black. Right side has: No Leaf Clover Welcome Home Sanitarium ..And Justice for All Some Kind Of Monster Black Album Master Of Puppets Fade To Black I wanted the artwork to be special because its going to be the first thing people see. Now that I have the artwork done, my plan is to get all the parts for the cabinet first, cut all the notches, holes and slots then apply the artwork so it looks good sitting their as I work on the inside and all the trouble shooting.:proud: I know, it seems like I am working ass backwards doing the artwork first but thats what makes these builds so cool, everyone is different but we all have the same goal. I am Happy I made it this far and can't wait for the challenges to come. I'll update the thread as I go. :thrasher::thrasher::thrasher::thrasher: Update: Here is a short crappy video of the end results. http://vid1303.photobucket.com/albums/ag151/kizam33/Photobucket%20Desktop%20-%20Eddie%20Maziks%20iMac/Pinball%20Project/IMG_2318_zps8wgeo6pm.mp4
