G-Man, could you post your address so I know where I'm going? Thanks a lot!

I don't have officer belt boxes, but they appear similar enough to my Cylon belt boxes. Any pics of the back sides of the boxes? I could tell from there how to attach them.

yes I "borrowed" 2 altoid tins so I'd be gluing the clippies to the fronts since they are embossed and priming and painting silver i guess after sanding them abit to rough up the surface.

Even without clips on there, there's a number of different ways to hook them to your belt.

G-man,

Thanks a ton for hosting this. I didn't get much done on my personal project, but we made some progress on other members' projects and I learned a couple of great tips for my upcoming clone build.

It was great seeing everyone too!

Thanks again!
