    1. Alpinetech 1590B precut for DNA200
    2. Evolv DNA 200
    3. Stealthvape DNA200 mounting kit
    4. Fullymax 900mah 3s lipo
    5. Fatdaddyvape V4 BF 510
    6. Mitec 12mm clicky switch
    7. 10ml unicorn bottle

    The finish will be Performix Plasti Dip rubbery coating.

    That's not the 510 I'm using but that's the Evolv 510 for those of you who haven't seen it yet. The board is the DNA200.

    The color of the lid on the spray can is the color the mod will be. He was gonna do a dip swirl finish for me but I thought with the size of the mod I should go with something that offers a better grip.

    I did a dry fit today of the mounting kit and found with the +/- buttons that came with the box that there is a gap between them and the buttons on the board. The standoffs are 6mm long but i will have to cut them down to about 4-5mm in length, no big deal there.

    I should have the hole drilled for the 510 and board mounting holes drilled in the next couple of days. after that, I can apply the finish on it and then I will be at a stand still until the battery and bottles come in. I'm gonna have to make a bracket of some sort for the bottle so when its pushed in it wont go to the back of the box since it is a big box.

    oh yea, thanks for reminding me lol, and I need to cut the sqonking square cutout. and yes, it will be like the REO, I think. Of course I have to wait until I get the bottles to cut the square cutout tho.

    Ok, sorry I haven't posted in awhile. I've been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and have had blurry vision. Anyways, my vision is stable now. Made some changes to Steve's mod. Ordered him a anonized blue enclosure. I've fixed the standoffs on it. Here are some recent pics of me dry fitting the hardware.

    Looks great. I love that blue. It's gonna match my Quicksilver atty nicely.

    Next step is to fabricate a stand/bracket to raise the juice bottle closer to the sqonking hole. Prolly gonna make it out of lexan then plasti dip it cobalt blue to match (hopefully) the color of the box.

    Yea, I'm happy with it. What I did was measured the width of the bottle and marked 2 lines, then I marked 2 lines that would center the height of your finger on the bottle so when you push the bottle, it should be centered. Ok, did that make sense lol

    As you can see, the bottle sits down too deep.
    Don't worry, I'll clean up the bottom left corner

    Here's a pic of the torx screws I'm using to mount the board. Looks sharp in my opinion.
