    I checked the tracking on the items I need to complete the punching fixture and they should be here tomorrow, October 4th. All that I need to do is drill and tap 6 holes, mill one 20mm opening and ream one 5mm hole. I should have it done before it's "Miller Time". ;)

    No clue on the switches though.....o_O

    I checked with the local Post Office and I can package and ship these as First Class mail (padded envelope) for $4.

    Well, the 20mm mill is out for delivery today. I'm going to start drilling and tapping as soon as I upload this post. The piece for the mounting arm MAY arrive today, but will definitely be here tomorrow. If you don't need a switch, I could ship brackets by Monday. Otherwise, stand by.

    I'm new here, but this thread caught my eye. I would be interested in getting this mod. I'm planning a build and will be using the 920D Gilmour harness... which I won't have until 6/21. I like the idea of a recessed mini toggle switch, so I'm looking get at least the bracket. If can get a slot in the pickguard that would be great.
