    Hey there modders, im starting on an interesting venture today. thanks to @dr3d inadvertantly making my mind up for me, i decided to build myself a DNA200 mod out of some exotic wood. well, some of my supplies came today, so now is a good time to start a thread dedicated to the building of this mod. this will be a pic heavy thread, as i will update frequently with my progress.

    ok ere are some of the items i received today

    buttons donated from an ipv mini that belonged to @Vaperjim who had sent it to me for repair, but the chip was FUBAR. well, not to worry jim, told you parts of it would get used eventually

    a nice 3x3x12 stock of African Wenge. enough to do a couple mods in case anyone else was interested after i was done with my own. or i just might take the chips outa all my mods and make customs for em, who knows.
    keep checking back for updates anyone interested

    K ... so ... strangely, I find myself digging through bookmarks trying to source some material of my own. Very excited to follow your progress.

    @vapingbeauty, the images are working fine for me ... even yours.

    I'm not ready to thank you yet, but my inquiry for the material I want is officially opened. My fingers are crossed. And, thanks for 'causing this itch ... I think.

    Will be watching this build. Been thinking that when those last couple of threads finally go out on the Cloupor T8 that you sent me that 510 connector for, it might be interesting to turn it into a box mod.

    One question though... why don't you use a heavier gauge of wire for the 510 connection?

    Seems like at the power you are pushing that it would be a worthwhile upgrade but I don't know what is standard in the high wattage mods either.

    the datasheet for the chipset as set by evolv calls for 12-16 gauge wire. im trying to make a compact mod, so anywhere i can save space, i take it. kind of made battery selection a pain, since, the 3s 900mah that evolv sells was nt gonna cut it for me, i did manage to find a 3s 1500 mah that was very close in dimensions. benefit of a lipo is that you dont need the crazy mah that you do with LiIon to get good battery life

    im trying to decide if i want the 510 flush with the top of the mod or slightly recessed, not for any practical reason, just for aesthetics
