    Good to have you back, dawg ! :) Glad to see you had a good time at the tournament. :thumb:

    That Plexi, is that one of those white T-shirt transfer things for dark shirts ? Too bad you can't see the nice paint you sprayed any more.

    How are we going to do this now ? I'm about halfway done with a line art design that matches the theme of Mook's design, but looks quite different. Should I continue ? Should I convert Mook's design to fit the actual enclosure and drill template ? Or will the two of you work something out ?

    Ok, I will finish it later today. :)

    Just a couple of moments ago, I got an e-mail that the new PCB's will arrive at my supplier in about ten days. I take this means he's done tweaking the prototype, so I should get a new partslist and drill template for the mini enclosure soon.

    Thanks and no, that's a clear water slide decal over HOK Black Pearl with white on top to make the yellow ink stand out more.

    Then there will be a lot of wasted space and quite a bit of the design will disappear behind the white plastic washer of the footswitch. I think it's better if you and Beerdog work out a way to get your own design on the pedal.

    Should anybody else want "Tribal Angel," the work is done already. Just let me which colour you would like to go with it and it's yours. If I may make a suggestion, I think Pedal Parts Plus Translucent Gold with the upcharge for a brushed look would go really well with the tribal.

    Agreed. That is an awesome looking pedal. I'm sure it's way better in person too.

    Man, I am way more boring than you guys. I was thinking about a solid white pedal with just a "Top Secret" stamp on it. You know, the red stamps put on govt documents. Keep people guessing as to what it really is.

    Holy crap dude...that IS awesome but I really don't think my name should be on it since your the one doing the real leg work with board prototyping and production. I'm just the paint/graphics dude. :D

    I bet any pearl based color over that box would look killer. I'm thinking a pearl blue and cleared over would look awesome.

    so Beerdog, now you're back from the ballgame, do you think you could knock me one of these up? for a fee, of course?

    and to be honest, the "top secret" thing looks pretty cool :thumb:
