French fry phone + ipod = fry-pod

Featured
what do you need to match your "juno hamburger cell phone"? a french fry ipod of course.

i converted a french fry telephone into a carrying case for my video ipod. i had no good reason to, the idea just popped into my head when i was walking about with my ridiculously inconvenient hamburger phone. why not carry an oversized plastic french fry replica to match the equally absurd plastic hamburger. the build out was the same as the hamburger: gut the phone, cut some openings, fit the gadget, and then screw it back together. it actually works great (the case shields the sun, it has it's own usb cable ready to go), it just doesn't fit in my pocket anymore.

Step 3: Cut me lou.

this is the hardest part of the project: how much to cut. cut too much and you destroy the look of the phone, don't cut enough and it's impossible to work the ipod. i used a rubber ipod case as a model for the fitting. i actually used the screen that came with the case because it fit perfectly on the rectangular "ear piece" of the phone. using a dremel i cut out the window, shaved off the plastic from the back of the keypad, cut out half of the keys (i wanted to use the keys), smoothed out the inside, and cut out the top of the phone.

Step 4: Cinderella fitting

the ipod fits. the top was the most important part. it's snug, won't wiggle, and is viewable through the "ear piece screen". i'm using a photo adapter as a leveler, the white thinggy attached to the bottom of the ipod. now i need to make a foam cradle for the ipod to sit in.
Where can you get those pieces of vinyl? I really need something like that :c

The French in French fry refers to the "French cut" potatoes. Not to their nation of origin.
