    Default Detolf Modifications.

    Hi Freaks.
    I've had a few forum members recently ask me how I made the
    adjustible shelves for my detolf's, so I thought I would start a
    thread explaining the process.
    This is just one of two mod's i want to show you guys and if
    any other freaks want to share their ideas for lighting and other
    shelving mod's please post it here.
    Thanks

    Mod..No#1
    For the adjustible shelves you will need some stainless steel rod
    5mm thick by 34cm long.
    Bend each end at 90 degrees at 17mm in. hope that makes sence.
    When you have done this the total length of the rod will now be
    30.6 cm long
    Now you will need to grind down 3mm at each end to make it flat

    Make sure the finished length of the rod is 30cm. The grinding is just
    to make ziptieing to the existing rods easier.
    Hope this helps you guys.

    Ok Mod..No#2
    This is a great mod to make your detolf look fkn' sweeeeet
    dont know why I didn't do it ages ago.
    I pulled my detolf apart today and measured the rear glass panel
    and replaced them with mirror.
    The total cost for this was $100AUD = $81.47US for the pair.
    Here are the exact measurments you will need to give your glazier.
    Length = 157.5cm
    Width = 38.5cm
    Thickness = 5mm
    Before & after shots


    Now I can see my Berserker at all angles...


    Hope these mod's have helped you guys.
    Please post any other cool ideas and feel free to ask any questions.

    The glass is sweet ! I wish I could afford to do that ! What a difference !

    Then maybe I would not mind adding lights.

    The mirror back panel is a brilliant idea!

    is the tension on the zips enough to hold heavier items (pfs etc...) or are you still using the original cross bars for those?
