You know how when you single an AT3k you get that huge hole in the front of the shell? Like this:

Well, I made a template for a plastic piece to cover that hole. The hole in the center should fit a 1/2" PVC coupler.

The total size of the image is 3x3 inches or 216x216 pixels at 72ppi, make sure that it is being printed out at that size.

Then, cut it out:

And glue it on:

Then you're all set for sanding/painting. Of course, where I am its freezing outside, so it may be a while before I get to that. I know this isn't much, but I think that it looks much more finished than before. I would make a 2k one also, but I don't have access to a singled one.

Good job,
I'm liking all of the recent use of plastics in modifications/homemades. It makes for a very clean, finished look.

Looks good, man. You should add a bit of epoxy or bondo or something like that around the edges to bring it together before you paint it, just to smooth it out.

You should also cut it in half before gluing so you can get your gun open again. Looks very clean, good job.

Just add a liitle bondo says the guy with the bondo contaminated apartment.

On-topic:I really like it. Finally, I will not have to go around with a giant hole in my gun.

Yeah, both cutting it in half and adding Bondo are good ideas. As you can see, the edges where the turret would have fit in are a little messed up on mine, due to some mistakes trying to fix the turret that I had on there but later scrapped. The whole 3k shell needs some work, gonna have to get on that when it gets warm enough to do stuff outside.

Glad to hear you got most of that bondo cleaned up.
