    Did the parts fit perfectly after all the measuring or did you still need to sand some edges?

    I love how that looks.
    So clean~

    And thanks for explaining the battery to me.
    I never thought about powering anything but RC cars with that kind of battery.

    Particularly awesome. Retro and futuristic at the same time. Kinda 80's vision SciFi.

    I have passed this page to a friend of mine who is an audio nut, I'm sure he will like it too.

    Always thought there was a market for a Ghetto Blaster style DAB, MP3 unit especially as the 80's are so in at the moment. Add WiFi to it and you could get all those internet radio stations.

    Hmm!! project time maybe.
