splashed out and just got my custom polished solid brass shooter knob with my interpretation of the hook and ladder logo on it, really happy with the finish and quality

pretty sure Stern's just protects the side of the projector but not the glass that the image projects onto which this mod does.

ah I see, now I wonder if it distorts or effects the projected image at all?

apparently like a headlight lens that is curved / domed to drop over the projector and glass that the image is projected on to protect

this isn't really a visible enhancement mod, but is a modification to the game and hopefully helps people. I had the left hand scoop snap over the weekend after 2 months / 450 plays and documented else where and thought to share it here as well for those that may have a issue down the track. AMD are supplying a new one under warranty but this bought me time as had friends over and allowed the game to be played.

Ghostbusters Target Wedges
 Finally got the parts back and did some final testing for a solution to the air balls off the X2 & X3 targets on the Ghostbusters pinball.
 Basically the Stern targets are dead vertical and when hit bend back beyond the vertical which then allows the ball to go into the air. Bally / WMS targets leaned forward, so I devised a simple wedge that can be inserted into the existing Stern target assembly. This wedge now leans the target 4 degress forward from vertical and has been effective in stopping the massive airballs. I still get the random minor ball hop but has improved the design of the target and decreased the problem alot. You will need 1 wedge per target. You will also have to source 1 x 1/8" longer bolt for the target assembly as there just isn't enough thread once the wedge is installed.

 you will need 1 wedge and one 1/8" longer bolt / screw per target
