Made a Tx case from an old Panasonic VHS Reporter case that was destined for the garbage bin at work. Added in some foam-rubber and violla! DX7 case with room for batteries and charger! I can keep batts in separate 'compartment' in the case and if they go, they wont take TX with 'em (hopefully)

nice way to make use of an old case.
We were just talking about those recorders the other day. I remember going to high school basketball games and you would look in the stands and see 100 of them huge recorders. ha ha. How time has changed.

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

Mod of second case to field-box is partially complete. I have placed sealed battery and fuel pump, wired fuel-pump with a DP-DT Center-Off Momentary toggle so it can pump either way without switching wires around.

Now i need a fuel tank. i need something with a screw-on cap, measuring no more than 7x5 inches horizontally, and no more than 3.5 inches tall. Opaque if possible, to keep sunlight off.

Any leads?
