It's starting to look very good .......... can't wait to see it all smoothed up
<--However, you do get a lot of people prodding you to do stuff.
It sounds like you have a dust filter mask instead of a chemical resperator. Either that or it's gone off. I found out the hard way that painting masks can go bad. I had a fun time trying to drive home that night. They start stinking of fumes inside even when you aren't painting.
LOL. I was thinking the same thing.
1 of 4
Voyager has 7 of 9, I have 1 of 4. First handle cut out:
Set the jig:
First cut done with jigsaw and metal blade - noisy!!!
From the mother board side:
From the door side:
Now from the top:
I forgot the front view:
I need to cut off the width of the masking tape and make 3 more. Grind them smooth, and on and on.
I'll be at the bench for a while.
Good luck! I hope this turns out great!
John, just letting you know I decided to vote for your mod this month. Good luck on the polls, even though you need to add some MDF wood panels on it to make it 'cool'.
Thanks E.E.L. for the vote. But for the wood I'm more of a teak and mahogany modder than MDF (too dusty) LOL
John --> If you know anyone who can mill those for you, get it done! You've done a crazy good job, but if you cut them 1-2mm from the edge, and get them milled, they will be straight and perfect! And you won't have to sand and all that!
I still have the machine shop guys lurking in the background, but I kind of like the "by my own hand" style. Besides, I am having fun and learning a ton!
The last movie quote nobody remembered was from "Day After Tomorrow" when the dude falls through the glass ceiling of a mall.
Today's quote: "In the pipe 5 by 5. Where's the D**n landing lights?"
I found a great carry case for Sacrilege! It goes with me everywhere now. I'll include a pic in the next update.
Grumbles under his breath - "I say you cut out the four corner splices, then add a center panel made from the logo area on top to hide your seams."
sounds simple but will usually not end up that way! Or at least so goes my life!
Aliens - in the drop ship
Actually, that's a slight misquote John. "Where's the damn beacon?" is correct. Sorry...bit of a hardcore ALIENS fan if you hadn't already guessed.
Baby's new bag
I mentioned that I found a carry bag for Sacrilege in another post. Here it is - Sacrilege now goes everywhere with me.
Nice top handle. Remember how light she is:
Top open. Bottom feet installed and one handle for height measurement:
This is why it fits. Cool humped up top:
I can remove the embroidered lettering on the front with a seam ripper. Or not. It's not important, but it's tacky.
It almost actually weighs nothing - even with the outside pockets full of pieces not yet fitted.
A place for everything and everything in it's place.
baby's got bag... nice that you care about your mod John. But i think that you are first person that found a bag for his mod ... Once again how you do it?? Again you found smt. nice magic again ?
Humor for tonight
"That boy doesn't take anything serious"
a Few more words
I had one of the full cases out and Nature called. ROFL

Your's looks far better than the linked one.
