    got a friend at work to build me the box out of 16 gauge sheetmetal
    th_5ee64aca-1-1-jpgth_2e30e100-1-1-jpg
    next i laid out the side panal holes . i cut them to mount the panals strait to the side of the box . they should be recessed back some .

    th_c2c20664-1-jpgwas not sure what to use on the carbinite so ask around . stormrider put me on to the stuff he uses for his hic pulls . awesome stuff . very fun to work with . i'll let him tell u what it is . i'll just call it carbinite

    did a test pour

    Re: my hic

    i put tons of staples all over the plywood for the carbinite to stick to . also don't mix to much at once . it sets quick .

    the yellow is wood glue i added to help save on the carbinite . i took a puddy knife and flatted out the big pour . went back and poured over it again to smooth it out a little .

    Re: my hic

    hit up jon @ fettronics . he built me a awesome set of lights . i put 2 hero panals on it . one on each side as seen in esb .

    photo-1-jpg

    hunted up pieces and parts to fill in the panals . not at all accurate but tried to keep it close.

    The rubber is flex 80 from alumilite. The stock stuff is a little different than what they mix for me. Begins set at 5 mins, open time is 7-9. After that its putty for a min, then its time to throw it away.

    Project looks great. How much does it weigh?

    Super job m8.

    Finished up my star wars room. Got the HIC hung on the wall. Thought it looked good enough to share. The video is the whole room. My entire star wars collection. Little to much for the small room.

    Cool thanks.
    I was running low On funds so I just made do with what I could find and make. I just hot glued them on and was going to get a nice set one day. There's a couple of guys that make full sets. I'll find some names.

    Thanks Dom
