Here is a picture of the circuit board and battery tray mounted on the inside of the backing plate. When I had the company engineer the circuit board I had them make it compatible with both the ROTS and ESB version chest boxes. I now just tell them which version I need and they install the LED's in the correct position. You can see that the long extension on the bottom has the accommodations for the 10 LED's for the red illuminated rocker on the ROTS version along with the 2 sets of 3 LED's on the right side for the red and green buttons that light up on the ROTS.
That looks clean enuff to eat yer dinner off! :eek :love
You know, I'd almost think it was some kind of 3D-modelled rendering of an ESB Chestbox, only I've seen the WIP pics! If it took you a year to acheive this end-result..... it was time well-spent! :thumbsup
In due time, after trooping with it 40-50 times and it getting tossed into my tote it will weather its self nicely. I understand where you are coming from but I have put to much time and love into this thing to beat it up right now. :lol
