    just curious when you do a point to point mod like this.... are the leads on the caps/resistors always long enough, or do you sometime need to extend them with wire? wonder what you might use of so, and what you do use for internal wiring, if i may ask.

    thanks

    I think you should change your screen name to 3D because your mods seem to take on a very "cubist" aesthetic. And they're always BIG! lol

    Nice work!

    I have always thought if I could find huge tech flex to incase my mods in they would look that much cooler... but nothing that would look good enough or be cost effective

    Curious as to what the peg board material is actually named and if you just go cap lead to cap lead here or if there is wire. Can't quite tell from the pics. Thanks.
