    ok, that was lame... but not trying to be racist :p im almost hispanic, so lol, but seriously, spanish 2nd language up there? why not russian as the 2nd one? seems more logical to me...

    I can see Russian or French, but Mexican?
    I heard from some Mexicans not long ago that Canada is the new promised land. They don't want to hang around Texas anymore because it's full of Mexicans.:lol:
    -But hey, you have to feed those starving polar bears something.

    I derailed my own thread!:lol:

    did you hear about Arizona's new illegal immigrant laws? They put businesses with illegals out of business permanently(no more business licenses, can never own/partnership a business for life in Arizona) and ship the illegals back to Mexico...

    cant wait to see this finished... you doing a cover?

    @Mvagusta - Nothing from that house will be recycled. It's all broken glass and baby toys...
    @Nul- When it's done it will be a full enclosure.

    OK, I really let that go off topic...

    -I got the back frame together. -The final form should be a little more obvious now.
    [​IMG]
    -I needed some electronic bits. I opted for quality antiques that I would never use if not for this mod.
    [​IMG]
    -I went high-tech on the wire wrap. I'll save the electrical tape for real electrical work.:D
    [​IMG]
    -I stuck the LEDs in my balls because I want my balls to glow red.:hehe:(overload!)
    [​IMG]
    -Now all the babes can see them in the dark.
    [​IMG]
    -Front...
    [​IMG]
    -Back...
    [​IMG]
    -and the 3 interlocking bits apart. This is just to prove I didn't screw up and glue it all together.;)
    [​IMG]
    -Currently, I'm building up the outer walls, (and making a fantastic mess!)

    Be prepared. The next update will feature a Baghdad-rated pinata!

    May be someone (best one: you) should take this not so much "ghetto" mod to a finer material , as aluminum, acrylic or wood.

    The shape and interlocking are most interesting!
