    I just screwed mine up by using too hot of a soldering iron. Anyone have an extra?

    Why you have to go breaking things again? Ever get the shock mount fixed?

    Shock mount is fixed, been out 3 times since my neighbor welded the shock mount. I'm sure I'll manage to break it eventually, but it held up to some big whoop-dee-doos that I hit coming back from Jupiter Mine in the dark. The DRAC still works, but I can't solder in the dip switch to calibrate my speedo. I burned off a cicuit that didn't have a jumper on it, so it still works at the factory calibration.

    I'll take it! PM me what I owe you and I'll pay you for the switch, too. It saves me from having to buy another soldering iron that I'll probably use once.

    2 done and ready for who wants them. these came from running trucks but have been out for a while so not 100% sure thay still work.

    helps when i have a soldersucker and a 30 watt iron unit just for electronics. leftover from my dads stuff. :D thay were still a pita to remove tho. old solder just doesnt like to come out easy.

    Sweet! Mine would have looked like that if I wasn't too cheap to go buy a new iron.

    Wow, old thread - i realize, but sweetk30, still interested in doing these?

    I despise soldering.

    gotta love the brotherhood! As soon as i find an extra one, i'll get it sent up your way wiht some Beer money. I'll pm you when i find one. Not real urgent, but would like to be able to change tire size as soon as i find a deal on tires, so i would like to have a mod'd DRAC on hand.

    THanks!
