    Thought this was great INST and have even posted it on the F/B group PROTO - TYPE - CHAT as a COOL BUILD, if you would like to pop over some time it would be great to hear about where you get your ideas and inspiration.
    Loved your other post about replacing the missing phone button - low tech but still a great way to save a costly bill for repair.
    Nice job.
