        Here is a quick, simple and inexpensive way to make a topper or header for your Funhouse.  A topper is just what it sounds like, something on top of the back box of your pinball machine.  The topper is usually related to or carries on the theme of your pinball machine.  Some pins come with their own topper but others, like Funhouse, don't.  I saw this done on another site and thought my Funhouse deserved an equally nice topper.

Typical 4 light bathroom fixture that I picked up from Home Depot

I used the closest matching blue semi-gloss and applied 3 coats to the fixture. 25 watt color bulbs were added.

I also picked up a 12 foot extension cord and shrink tubing. The tubing shrinks around the connected wires when blow drying it with a hair dryer.

The connected wires were tucked inside the casing and I added small adhesive felt protectors on the bottom to keep from scratching.

Voila!

The lights compliment the game's atmosphere
