just curious, who makes yours, is it SDI or maybe Photo-Etch?

My NVG is made by SUNDIAL and my white light is from SDI (a Woman-owned small business)  8)

I received the ICP from RSW last week.
I just had a short peek out of curiosity (need to finish a new kitchen first), but that short peek was enough to be impressed by the quality, the looks, and everything  :hail:
Fantastic product, love it  :clap:

Never before got an item in such a professional package  :cheerleader:

...heh...you beat me... :brickwall: ...I got mine last week too... :yihaw:

I already had a backplate, so I have to drill some holes - I'll be detailing that in my build thread for others that are in the same sitch, but yeah - this thing is TOP flight... :thumbsup: !

The driver software is quite the ticket too...

In an email, I received from Alex the assembly/disassembly instruction manual.
It is just two sides (one leaf of paper  :D), and I have read it ... Because I have the 2 switches and the 4-way switch, I ordered the ICP without the switches.
To install the switches you have to do an almost complete disassembly, mount the switches and assemble everything ... making me wish I had bought the ICP *with* the switches installed  :whistle:

So, if you are still thinking of buying the ICP, I strongly suggest to buy *everything*, because then this really fantastic ICP is truely Plug&Play in your pit !!!

Yes - I got the same e-mail from Alex and it's going to be very helpful.  I'm sure that when I bought my backplates that this ICP was just a dream, so I have to drill as well as otherwise assemble it - it looks pretty easy to dis-assemble and put back together, it's drilling the backplate that will require some skilz...which is why Henkie beat me to the publishers!  I already had the toggles, so I only needed the kit minus backplate and toggles.

BTW: Kukki's backplates will also fit to Mike's ICP panel if you have one of those and are semi-rolling your own...I started out that way but my backplate for it had/has it's thumb wheel mounts broken, so I bought Kukki's as a hopeful replacement.  Which will also allow using Kukki's thumb wheels, if you're down the track to rolling your own.

I haven't checked to see how Kukki's thumb wheels might fit to Mike's backplate, but I have a feeling they will.  And Mike's backplate will also fit to Kukki's HUD.

Really nice looking piece of hardware.

I would like to make one critical note though.
Wouldn't it look way better using waxed nylon lacing cord instead of those big lumpy tie wraps ?

It all looks professional at high level, just to be finished with this low level big chunky wraps.

Just my 2 cents.

I’m thinking no one is going to see the back once it’s installed in the pit?  ;)
