Next Whitewood/playfield design ideas

Mapping out where I decided I'm going to put some of the inserts. Doesn't look pretty right now but hopefully it will turn out ok when I get out the router. I'm no pro, just a dude trying to draw on a whitewood in his wife's closet



I'll make a better drawing to kinda explain what I'm trying to do with the insets in a later post but here is a close up.

Wire forms and pop caps

Was going to make my own wire forms but I realized these extra ramps I had from a goldeneye will work and looks good. The right ramp is exactly what I had in mind and the left is similar and will work. I always loved the wife forms on goldeneye are some of the best ramps and I'm going to use them on this game is a way that is a totally 180o difference. I'm going to have them powder coated locally to give them a different look as well. I was thinking of doing a purple but I also this red would be unique. I can't remember a game that has red ramps. Maybe some one else can chime in if they know of one.
