Thanks guys for all the kind words  :-[ the feedbacks gives a lot of motivation to keep pushing with the pit.

Yep, I have a 10.4" and a 4" (not sure right now about this one), you can see them working in page 14 I think.

Cheers

Thanks for that. I get very glad when anything I post is useful for someone. I have gotten so much information and help from the Viperpit´s gang that is great feeling when I get to give a little bit back to the community.

Cheers

Still going, slowly, but going:

I completed my fllood lights gor de glareshields. I thought they were pretty easy to replicate and not worth to use big bucks to get the real thing. You hardly see them anyway. I am pretty happy with the result:

I finally got the time to install Mike's thumbwheels addon in my ICP. It works great! Easy to install, I just had ti shave a little the inside of ny ICP box and make some extra cut outs on the addon plate to fit the wiring and switches which protrudes at the back of my ICP:
