    the HS on my vpin is 718k but you wouldn't know it from tonight's efforts, I must have had about 10 games too but just could not get out of the 300k's. not having a safe inlane is a PITA when the tilt is so sensitive.

    @acejas see pic this is what I mean, when we were talking in the other thread, if I had my time again for my build, I would do a 46" vertically mounted bg panel as opposed to the same size as the PF (2x40") you can see the diff like dogs balls when lined up with your real pins.

    it's a shame you can't get a custom size led or lcd panel, with an hdmi input, you could fill the whole backbox, that would be sweet.

    Problem is the vertical has to fit in the bottom of the cab, so you can't go much bigger.

    I figured with the 46" PF lift out, you could probably go to a 50" BG and rout the cab. Also 50" would be closest to real SS.

    I've looked before at the room in the cab between the edges of the panel and the edges of the main body and I do have a fair bit of leeway either side, it would fit OK in The Dredded Pin I think, I would probably have to find a panel with a real thin bezel though, which means $. i'll keep haunting gumtree in the meantime for bargains.

    Yours is 2x46" yeah ? 50" panel as BG would be good

    Yeah mines 2 x 46.

    With your wide bezel on the PF, it would be easier to make the BG biggerer.

    Ha, Edy I have been doing a bit of research and I saw your post on this very same thing from 2012

    http://www.vpforums.org/index.php?showtopic=18926

    I have a spare projector I never use so I am thinking - what about roof mounting the sucker and getting a true, full size BG ? the brightness and res would not be the same as the PF but the effect might be quite cool.

    After i thought about that for a moment, I found a post where a guy has used an LED pico projector mounted under the lockdown bar. Crazy stuff. I can't find any pics but I reckon it's something I might experiment with.
