    And now, lets start with the mod..... :thumb:

    Ok... here we go... first a drawing on the case i wanted to cut. But there is sometimes an idea... and when its painted on the case.... the idea isnt good any more... ;) ... i decided to cut in an other "design"

    After that, i cut a few parts as spacer.... i will try to get the inside of the case quiet clean.

    By the way.... you will never see cnc or otherwise machine made parts. I do it the oldscool way..... with electric and non electric hand tools ;)

    first the theory....
