Hey guys,

I just finished up my spirit pack kitbashing that I started last year in Nov.
Upgrades:
*3d printed V Hook
*Fincher Ribbon Cable
*More accurate decals
*Corrected Wire Colors
*Sheet Metal Motherboard
*Alice Frame
*Acrylic Tube, Homemade Banjo, & Trigger Tip
*Neutrona Wand Vent Light
*2 Sub Mini Neutrona Wand Toggle Switches (the trigger box is too small to accomodate anything without completely destroying & redesigning it)
*11 5mm Blue LEDs for Powercell
* 4 10 mm Red LEDs for cyclotron w/ flashlight reflectors
*Arduino & code for 11 step shift register
*Homemade protoboard pcb's for powercell, cyclotron, & powercell mount

Pics & short vid (with GBNJ theme I wrote -laughs-)

The Youtube video works fine, looks awesome!

What did you use for the Acrylic tube on the wand? That's one thing I really want to change on mine.

I bought a 6' length of actual acrylic tube from a manufacturer I found on line with the proper O/D to fit inside the opening of the neutrona wand. (I'm pretty sure it was 5/8 outer diameter?) Then I eyeballed a length I though was good for an extended barrel and cut it to size. The hard part was using a drill press to insert the actual holes in the tube (I started by doing both holes at the same time with the small diameter rod inside the wand and then had to ream out the other hole for the larger rod slowly because the acrylic was so fragile. Then I used sprinkler fittings with a sanded out inner diameter to make the extended part of the black wand & the trigger tip. Still have to upload pics though -laughs-
