Hi.  Just down the road from you in Tucson... But grew up in phx (near metrocenter, before and after there was a metrocenter).  Used to be lots of real pinballs at golf n stuff.

Yep, I went to school in Tempe in the early to mid 80's (old guy, I know), played a lot of arcade games and pinball at Castles and Coasters of of 17. Also hung out at a mall arcade in Scottsdale.

Your VP looks great! How did you get a TV inside? Looks like it fits nicely, what size screen?

Silver all, if that question about the cabinet was for me, I just started with having an old cabinet around, and measured for the biggest possible screen I could fit in it.  Took the tape measure to Walmart and everything.  It is a snug fit, but looks really nice in there, and it was a discontinued model, so pretty darn cheap as I recall.  Then just build wooden supports to hold it in place below the glass at the appropriate level.

I hope there some pinball still to be had there. I'll be in Phoenix around Memorial Day or so. I'm doing a roadtrip from Chicago. I'd take my cab, but I can't fit it in my Escort... :Lol:
