Finally got some time to do a little tinkering on the machine!

The transport section between left ramp and top VUK is now in place.
The idea was to use a plastic transport, since I wasn't able to fix the metal version properly...but the fix was amazingly simple.

I simply fastened a plastic extender from the end of the section and the rest just fell in place.
Feels really nice to finally have this section finished - plastic covers and all!

1) Close up of the top left section. 
I also added an extra flasher, since the plastic part was covering up the red light below. I think it both looks better and will probably function better this way as well.

Mr Bubbles got his arm hot glued on and seems to be holding up just fine. Will see how he holds up during a couple of "games". If the arm falls of he'll need some elbow screws...

I also finalized the top right section of the VUK, so that it's bolted in place. Maintenance will be cumbersome, but hopefully won't be needed that often.

I have a couple of things left to do, such as fixing the broken magnet, but no show stoppers and with these additions I can focus on the programming of the actual game itself. Awesome!

The Punk's Not Dead!

I'm still around.
Just a little too much going on right now including album recording and concerts with my band.
So there's been to little time to do anything on the machine.

But soon!
