Whoah Son, this shit just got real!

First off, the ribbon cable mod, as done here:
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=27978

Image
The only difference is I glued the rolled ribbon down as pulling on it quite hard made it come loose.
Image
Image
Image
Image

Next, the battery door!!

Here we have a V-hook from Tyger Cheex and an aluminium battery cover from someone who's not a member on these boards anymore.
Image

Countersunk slotted machine screw from local DIY store (B&Q)
Image

Measuring the cover and marking the screws.
Image
Image

Screws cut with a hacksaw.
Image

Battery cover drilled and painted black
Image

Metal expoxy glue for added security (from B&Q)
Image

Smeared on the reverse side and into drilled holes.
Image
Image

Once set, filed flat.
Image

A little wonky but that's what you get with doing things by eye and by hand
Image

And presto!
Image

That's a nice mod! But just wanted to ask, is the hook upside down?

Sorry, just realised! I was thinking the part on the battery cover was the male connection.

Looks good! I hope to make these same changes to my Matty Trap. Thanks for the inspiration!

It's all pretty much molded in together. It would need delicate work that maybe the skilled proppers here could handle but I'm not going to mess about with it!
