So I'm finally going to build myself a Vpin, I know some of the purist are going to be upset that i'm going to use this classic machine to do it with.

I picked it for 150 bucks in the summer, it has been well used and dont really wanna put the time and effort in restoring it for one game and i have limited space

I already did a restoration in the summer and it was fun learned a lot, you can see some of it here http://www.hyperspin-fe.com/topic/9054-to-gut-or-not-to-gut-that-is-the-question/page-2

old Harlem globetrotters seen its days but i'm giving it new life

It's not that great of a pin anyway. If you sell the playfield and stuff I am sure you can be forgiven. Look forward to your build I plan on making one at some point, the machine I bought I ended up fixing and really enjoy. I passed on a broken one of these globetrotter as it went for 1000 so your 150 seems like a steal. Good luck and keep posting progress! Thanks

That will require some research. I have seen people route out the top lip and other things to get the biggest decased screen in there. Good luck.

That's probably what's going to happen

That is why I want to build the table box my self that way it can be built around the screen to that size. Not that what you are doing is bad I know it just some customizing based on the build logs I read. 39" decased sticks out in my mind or 40". Not sure what model to choose hopefully something that turns on with power applied.

I know most tvs can be turned on via a signal over the hdmi cable too my xbone does that. Tossing out ideas. Cant wait to see more!
