Now you should have a cross like piece of plastic attached to the sides. cut this out carefully. Make sure to be careful at the sides, it is easy to break the plastic. After it is done you should have something like in the second picture.

Now you can customize it. If you want to, add a holder for 4 AA batteries, and solder it to the terminals ( negative to negative, positive to positive ) so you can show it's "real". You could also modify the ciruit i used in my casset player safe mod, so when it opened a buzzer and/or lights would go off.

Step 10: Video

This is a video of the hidden safe, with some bonus content :) !
I also made a mistake, at the end i call it a 9 volt safe, it should be a 6 volt safe. Whoops!
