    Dec 7, 2008, 8:54 PM - Hyperfirm MG34 to DLT-19 conversion #1

    Here's some pictures of my Hyperfirm DLT-19 conversion. I used T-track from Smitty at FISD. I made the box out of some sheet metal. I drilled some small holes in the vents to correctly wire the bottom tracks to the vents. I drilled small holes and CA glued the wire in the vent hole. Gave it a watered down wash of rust color. Then hit the silver sccents with some rub-n-buff, after wiping the majority off my finger. I followed the Braks Buddy t-track placement tutorial. The wire gauge might be a little off, but it's what I had in the garage.

    This would look incredible in a gun rack in the back of a pick up truck - I bet you would be immediately pulled over by law enforcement. (but it would make for a great you tube video)

    I finished it, but it won't have any knurling on the handle. It needed to be steel, and I thought I might have trouble with tools that are "hardened." I had to cut the back off the tube, it was too thick and stuck out past the edge. I used studs from my stud gun for the "rivets" or whatever they are. I drilled and sank a stack of 2 earth magnets into the body. They sit in a puddle of CA glue then I used the really thin CA glue to absorb aoround them before kicking them off with accelerator. Not super accurate, but good enough for me. It kept me busy for a few hours, which means I wasn't snacking and getting fatter. :P
