Unscrew everything.

Realize box is almost all dead space.

Remove plastic nubs holding wires in place.

Cut apart; I used a band saw to remove plastic sections.
(just to clarify cut so the front electronics section has a clean cut line that will sit on face of mask)

Undo solder on battery pack leads to make this easier / so you do not break wires. You may also consider lengthening the wires to make the project easier.

Duuuude that's Goooooooood
