    GreenLED this is phenominal idea and it seems to be working great! Out of curiousity what GID paint did you use on on the U2 in your pics? I would love a PM with some info so I could perhaps do it myself.

    Thanks

    Yeah, ksbman used to do us non-US CPFers all a big favor by forwarding stuff but alas he can't do that anymore due to his having moved to another place that doesn't allow for the delivery of packages when no one's around.

    The Custom and modified BST would be a better place for your request for parts.

    Anyone interested in putting a whiter 5mm led in a couple of River Rock headlamps for me? I'm thinking that an MJ or SMJ would be the ticket but those are the only ones I know about. The stock 5mm in this thing is so blue it's silly! I picked up four of these pretty cheap during a Target clearence so if you kill it, I'll live. Looks like just a remove and solder job. I would, of course, pay for whatever leds are used. So, if anyone wants to experiment on these, just send me a P.M.

    Thanks, FishX

    Some time ago, all CPF sections were bogged down by stickies. Unforgiven undertook the huge task of organizing all of those into threads similar to what I linked above.

    I can offer some things time permitting (I currently work full time, 7 additional hours on Saturdays, and goto school in the evenings.) I live in just outside of the Atlanta Metro area so I can help anybody willing to drive here. I can also help out others as long as return shipping is included.

    Flashlight Related
    I have been slinging solder since I was 8 or 9 (so about 20 years) and would love to help anybody that cant or would like to learn.

    I can also help out with basic electronics, or even things I dont know yet. Itl give me an excuse to learn.
    Being an electrical engineering student I can do basic electronics as of now(finishing my sophomore year) but my skills will grow over the next couple of years.

    I can do 2D autocad for anybody that might need to get the part in their head to paper.

    Well, I don't know shit about flashlights so I cant' help there but I'm fluent in a few languages including spanish so maybe something there and I do graphics and webdesign so..

    Also, at some point when i get some money (I posted a thread about it but got no replies and right now I'm broke again) I'd like to have someone build a killer headlamp for me where I of course pay the cost.

    Muchas gracias por ofrecer tus servicios, guiri.

    (I think gunga or datiLED were selling modded PT Eos for a reasonable price - or maybe you can trade for your services.)

    I would be willing to install Fedora or a flavor of Ubuntu and do general hardware updates/installs for any CPF member who can personally deliver and pick up their computer, at the cost of parts and shippng. I will also do low-cost computer builds for cost of parts and shipping. (Anything over $500 US gets treated as a regular order, and gets charged regular rates) Computers must be picked up personally. I will not ship assembled computers. (I live near Hutchinson, MN, USA)

    Computer advice is always free Just remember I'm highly opinionated.

    I will do certain mods for cost of shipping. One example would be cutting down a mag switch. Another would be reflow soldering an led to a pcb. Emitter swaps and boring lights are not included.

    Please contact me first with what you want done, so I can verify I'm qualified to do it.

    Due to my current schedule being pretty darn hectic, I will not be accepting new modding projects until things settle down.
