    What do you do to put the boot in? Every time I switch one of mine out it's one hell of a struggle with the tweezers and a lot of scratching lol

    I just grabbed the boot and pinched it out. The Boss was harder because of the extended lip, I had to lever out the oring. No scratches yet!

    To replace it for the one, I just put the boot on and then jammed the oring over it. With the Boss I put the oring and boot on at the same time, and tamped down the oring during installation to make sure it stayed.

    Thanks for the feedback...it was easy for me to get out, but super hard to put back in lol. I agree about the BOSS though; the coating on it is super tough! My Okluma has tons of tiny hairline scratches as a result but the BOSS held up to the boot replacement like, well, a boss.

    I just kinda jammed it in there with the Okluma, Boss takes some finesse.

    What did you swap the black with?

    In the BOSS I swapped black with GITD green and in the Okluma, the previous owner had swapped in a grey one...I swapped it back.

    They both use the same optics so I'll say yes, but I've never yet been able to reach the optics in my Boss so I can't officially confirm that.

    Maybe the Boss bezel wrench set can help?

    after you unscrew the engine from the head, you will need to unsolder the wires to the LED board, and then pop the driver out of the bottom. put in a H17F driver and resolder to the LED board. done.

    There is also a ground wire inside. It is soldered onto the board and screwed into the pill. You will need to remove it and solder it onto the H17F.
