Step 2: R-e-m-o-v-e!
Set aside it.
Step 3: Create!
(Hint: i made a plan previously the details and the dimensions of the new casing.)
Assemble the base and the side of the casing first using glue gun or instant glue.
Other parts of the casing will assemble later as you finish installing the speakers inside.
You can also spray-paint the board the color you want to match your ipod or mp3 players.
Step 4: Create Covers
Step 5: Cut-Out
Before assembling the dock, make a hole for the volume control and power switch in the front part of the dock casing.
I solder another av jack specially positioned for ipod nanos (1st, 2nd and 4th generations) and ipod shuffle (2nd generation).
I also change and relocate the led (see photos). Have a test if the jack is properly working.
Step 6: Assemble
Step 7: Make a Back Casing
Sliding type to open it at any time when a repair or alteration is to be made.
Done and done!
