I have an idea for an even lower profile version but that would require me to make an epoxy body for it so that's a job for another weekend.

Now you need to hunt for a black Dura Lock strip lmao. wink.gif

Nice work!

It's pretty easy to make and I think there's about $10 worth of parts used... If you're not up for the challenge yourself, I'm sure you can find a local DIY'er that'll do the soldering for you. And thanks!

I got two kinds of black dura lock, the standard and low profile. The low profile alone does not work well but the standard with the low profile works great.

I ended up putting the strong one on the amp and the low profile on the dap.

The PB2 kinda has my name written all over it... And I could use some black low-profile Dual Lock. And the 3.5mm connector on my ciem cable really ought to match the ones on my IC.

 

*sigh* It never ends.

They have it listed at 379 introductory price.
