all the target wedge sets purchased were sent out yesterday to those that ordered / bought them and have 2 sets spare if anyone wants a set.

some people in the US said they got by with the existing bolts and others said they needed the next size up from a 5/8" long (in which I did) - so you will need 1 off 6/32 x 3/4 bolt for each target.

I edited a picture that hopefully helps those that need it. I do admit that during the time waiting for refined wedges I installed 1/16" thick white double sided tape (near my thumb) behind the target to firm up the target and reduce the bend back and possible launch of the ball. Then when the wedges came I installed and didn't think to share that minor detail - sorry.

basically 2 install locations

Location 1 - brings the backing plate closer to the switch making it a little more sensitive. Adding the small piece of double sided tape will firm the switch up and reduce the effect of the ball getting airborne. I am playing with this set up and still get the odd minor air ball but not shooting over plastics and lanes etc and the switch is not as sensitive as original so not a given shot.

Location 2 - keeps the switch standard sensitivity but will still allow the target to tilt forward and when hit to bend back to a 90 degree position and possibly allow the ball to get airborne. Adding the tape will firm up and keep the ball / target at less than 90 degrees when hit and should be a improvement on airborne balls.

Hello there my good fellas. Wanted to clear up the ecto goggle lens mod questions.  The stern metal plate just protectes the screen from side air balls and in no way protects the actual glass on the ecto goggle assembly. My mod wraps around the front fully protecting the glass without interfering with the hologram.  If you guys want to go in on a group purchase and save on shipping let me know.

thanks for the post. Can you please advise as I have a small issue with the hood. Because it is only attached in 2 places I am finding the hood is slowly raising like a visor on a helmet. Each time it is hit I suppose it is being pushed upwards. Is there a fix or have you addressed this by having it fixed in more places
Pinball keeps me sane
