    It's about time this popped up on here. I can't wait to see more progress on this. Especially the side panels.

    Interesting set of tools for a HIC build. A dremel, canned air and some shears. I have obviously been doing it wrong!

    Looking good.

    Is that box something you made or is it one of the kits that are available from some members here and over at the RPF?
