    I have rubber MQ boards that go with my helmet interior kits v3. Might be an option.

    i've been able to file out some of the inside of the keyslots... it really depends on how thick the resin/fiberglass is. you can also round the back of the mq-1 slightly.

    the rubber one sounds like a great idea though.

    I'm doing the same thing with my MH, not because its too small with the MQ-1 board in, but because of the lack of visible detail on the board with the thick keyslots. I've sanded them down quite a bit, and no defects yet. Just take it a little bit at a time.

    Dont 'file it down'
    Take a 'foam sandpaper block' and 'sand it down' it will go slow so you wont destroy it or slip. Just rub it up and down.
