Dude,

As long as you're not trying to sell your replica's of real parts on ebay as being the real thing (and asking big bucks), I think you're a genius !!

:D

:D

You know, in many respect I think a replica might come more expensive than a hard to find real part.
Wasn't it you that rated the work at 14 euros an hour ...  :wink:
6 days work at 4 hours a day (week end and I do other stuff) is 24 hours. That would be 336 euros for the part and that's not even counting the materials needed...
Luckily most of the geek out here don't count the man hour required to do their project.
 :P
But anyway - I obviously won't offer any replica on ebay .. but I'm far from a genius. Any one with a lot of patience can achieve this, that's nothing extraordinary.  :lol:

Have a bandit day
