I didn't realize you were looking for the thread, haha, I have been using Drjameshouse's build as a reference too. I just went through his N filter posts again. It looks like he didn't go up as close to the cyclotron rings as I did but looks like he has more overhang. The holes in the N filter look to be about the same height from his photos.
I found the build thread that I have referenced twice before. First about the dip in the shell and building it up with body filler, and just recently about how to do the N-Filter!! He has done both awesomely.
This guy is doing a wicked job building his pack...enjoy...http://www.gbfans.com/community/viewtop ... =2&t=36750

Do you mask it off when priming and painting the shell and then mask of the shell when painting the n filter? I plan on using black etching primer for the metal parts.I'm sure Julz can answer that question for you, since that's what he did with his parts...

I didn't get to actual grind anything, it got to late to start making any noise outside.I'm interested in this step. Actual question and not trying to be rude, text always comes across the wrong way. What does this accomplish and why is it necessary?
