Hi Mike

I took the existing face plate and hand cut it with a coping saw. Tried
jigsaw/dremel etc. but all were too fast and melted plastic.

There's some more shots of the Slimp in situ

http://www.samares.net and select the Extension link.



Dean.

Dean - looks very nice! Did you have to purchase/fabricate a face plate for
your Slimp?
