I received my parts from Keith on Friday!!!! 2 static Holo Projectors, 1 movable Holo Projector for the front of the dome, and my PSI housing kits. I took some time last night to work on one of the PSI kits. I used a circle cutter and my drill to rough cut the holes for the lens and after some detail cutting, I was able to mount the lens and glue it in place. The panel isn't yet painted, so I haven't attached it yet. It's all taped inside and I need to eliminate some light leaking out. I'll mount the housing permanently tonight and start work on the rear PSI as well.

I found carriage bolts that did not have any branding on them - totally by mistake! I had previously purchased a couple bolts for my dome "buttons", but the only ones that I could find had the company initials raised on the surface. I had planned on removing the stamped letters with a sander. Needless to say, a dollar sixty-something later, and I saved myself the hassle of having to remove unwanted writing from a steel bolt. If you need them, check out your local Ace Hardware.
