Well I got a couple extras and thought I would give it a try. If it doesn't turn out I'm not out much! What do you use equipment wise and what tricks and techniques can you share?





Thanks for the help!!

time, a steady hand, and a sharp soldering iron tip.



I reccomend a fan to blow the fumes away from your face also.



The first ones take longer, but as you do it, you figure out it looks better the faster you go.

Doesnt really matter wich one you buy, I bought a battery operated one because it was more compact and easier to handle and I could get closer to the strap.



Just go to hobby bench or a hobby shop and buy a sharp iron tip, or just sharpen it yourself. Dan mentioned to keep your fingers on the inside of the BS to make sure you dont burn to deep, just go slow you will be amazed at how easy it is, The fan idea is a good idea, the fumes are terrible!!!
