Someone asked me about the type of pins used for this mod, I used 1/8 x 3/8 inch length aluminum bolts w/nuts. I think brass bolts would work well also, after all we're only talking 12 volts here.
I then cut 3/4 inch pieces of the derlin and drilled counter sunk holes so the nuts would be recessed.
The bolt that mounts the pivot block on the case is 1/8 x 2 inch (w/2 washers & 2 nuts).
add a spring to hold it off of the case enough to match block on door, adjust height by simply tightening and compressing spring to desired height. Pivot block screw length may vary depending on case or mounting location (may need to cut shorter) .
Although I mounted the block on the door with an ordinary fan screw, I think the block on the door could be installed with that really strong adhesive tape (3M Scotch Clear Mounting Tape #4010
1" wide x 60" long, clear double sided mounting tape.
Super strength adhesion, Used for mounting windows in computer cases).
I used Derlin for the blocks because I had a piece on hand (abs, pvc, any plastic) or even lexan would do if you want to get fancy, If I were to purpose a piece of similar material for this mod I would look for a piece of blue or black plastic, these plastics are available in several colors.
(Acrylic may prove to be too brittle in pieces that small)
In the future I will bring the wires in from the end of the block so they are together, this would allow single piece sleeving and a much neater look.
They could be made smaller of course, but the smaller you get the tougher they will be to align properly when mounting.
These are pretty easy to fabricate, I may be persuaded to make one if some of you, don't mind white or lexan, and want a ready to install set just PM me. Hey a Lexan set might be pretty cool with an led installed Edited by Fuego - 3/19/11 at 12:17am
