Looks great. I bet the basement looked a lot bigger before you put machines in it! LOL

I think I'm most jealous of the radio shack drawers.

Looks great!

When Covid hit and I went full time work from home, I put the 8 on CL for a stupid amount. The thought of the 8 just sitting in my driveway made me sad. I figured, put a stupid amount on it, destiny will tell me to keep it since the amount is so high, and it was meant to be.

The first hour on CL I had 25 emails offering my full amount and the 8 was sold that day.... :cry:

Good news is that I have only filled my gas tank up twice in 3 months, so I know the 8 would have just sat... I know the 8 is getting driven though... When the guy test drove it, we redlined it 3 times to hear it ding... Lolol

Congrats. They're pretty tough to find in decent condition, but not unobtainable. I'm sure you can find another if the mood strikes.

The SS has sat quite a bit, too. I've been full from home as well, and I think I've filled it up twice.

Thanks, guys. The Radio Shack drawers are awesome for storing pinball parts. The basement filled up fast, but I fit the number of pins I expected. I was hoping to just have 1 long row where Dr. Who and TZ are, but that alcove was a couple inches too small and there wasn't enough room to get the playfield glass off. I figure I could probably fit another game next to Dr. Who. If I rotate FG and TSPP ninety degrees, I could probably fit another pin too.

You could do what I did, and put a less-deep game there. I kept The Games for a while simply because it was six inches less deep than my other games, which made it fit in a tight spot. :)

Nice that you ended up with a few slots that are topper-compatible. Looks like plenty of room for a group to play, once we're back in that mode.

Congrats on getting set up!
