Twas fine at startup, and through the bleeding process that took all of 5 seconds...lol.
But after an hour I returned to find a single drop clinging to the underside and a few drops on the ground.
Gonna have to give it another go. No biggie, as I did not like the bonds on the seams... kinda obvious now that I see that one of them has a slow-leak.
I think the problem was that I am trying to make it too small, and I am having a difficult time getting a good capillary bond from the inside.
As a solution, I will try to make the base, top and 2 of the sides 1/16" larger so that that there is a tiny flange-like edge on all parts that meet. This will allow me to do the capillary bonding from the outside... or I may ask TAP Plastics to make it for me...

I used a 7/16" inch acrylic bit, and then a 1/2" tap.
I look forward to seeing the acrylic feet.... it seems I have a fetish for such things

I do not have a drill-press to ensure that the holes are perpendicular to the plane that I am drilling into. That little contraption ensures the angle is correct, and can be used to drill at an angle as well.... quite handy, but not ideal.

LMK if you could do that once you're done with Silentium and have some time for some R&R Syrillian.
Will do (if I can get it right at this diminutive size).
I have a project for Repo and another for LSDmeASAP that I will be working on, as well as another custom case.... but I think that I will be able to fit it in... as usual I will take forever

Less posting.... more modding.
Lol.. j/k McStuff. It is always a pleasure to have you around.
Oh! btw, I did as you asked and called the carrier of your guitar. Here is what happened (truncated to save humiliation).
"Hello, I am Syrillian from OverClock.net and I am inquiring about McStuffs order."
*very long pause*
"I'm sorry Sir... did you just say that your Celery is overcooked in your McDonalds order?"
*Laughter in the background*
See? They laughed.
