    Default Vr3 Fortress Edition Mods

    Alright, so I have a CSIA6 and a pair of RT55 about to go under the gun utilizing this modification - I would like to thank those individuals for their support in willing to give this a shot and help me get the ball rolling on dimensions - huge thanks!

    I should receive the plates in the next week or so :)

    Here is a pic of the custom engraved plate I received back today!

    That's my CSi A6. I'm really excited to see (and hear) how it turns out. I have a RTi A3 filling in till everything is finished.

    I was wondering what your SN was -

    Taking a little longer than I was expecting on the plates because of the measurements - when I reorder I will have all the dimensions on file and it will be much faster :)

    I am pretty pumped though

    They also have nylon washers that separate the connection point from the aluminum :)

    What is really cool is they line up 100% with Polk cut outs and screw alignment -- and the circuit boards slide right onto those threaded rods like no ones business... very cool!

    Also wanted to note you can use any length of threaded rod - at this moment in time I have used up to 6" for the bigger mods I have done....

    Thanks man!

    I spent a bit thinking them through and I think they came out nice and well designed - easily adaptable for just about anything you would want to do with them as far as posts or part sizes... :)

    Thanks again!

    I love the look of overbuilt electronics. It screams, craftsmanship, quality and durability.
