Brain Trasplant - 2007/05/04 11:55 This thread discusses the Content article: Brain Trasplant

Finally - many thanks to Marc Miller for his help with the capacitor mods; many thanks to Aibo_rescue (Richard) for his how-to guides on the brain transplant and answering multiple questions; and many thanks to James B. for help and working the board.

My Commell brain transplant was a success. It took one of Marc's mod psu boards, one new psu board from mini-itx, and reversing the polarity of the PC-On connector contrary to the motherboard manual, but it works, and like Grunt said of the performance increase, "wow."

Almost finished - all the plastics are together. I just need to add the decals and brush guards which I must have misplaced since starting. Can't seem to find them in the plastics delivery box. Did other founders edition folks have them delivered, or did I misplace them?

Thanks,
go Irish

Re:Brain Trasplant - 2007/05/04 16:05 Glad your bot is well now ... if there is a will there is a way

I have not received mine either, but I did ask Paul from FLR about them right after the plastic shells were delivered in early February. The black bumpers/grill were supposed to be shipped separately as soon as they were completed. I have not had any further info since then.

Re:Brain Trasplant - 2007/05/05 08:48 Thanks for the info, I was afraid I had misplaced them. Didn't see any mount points on the bot, and I think I am out of double-sided tape - I would hate to have to drill holes in the new plastic to mount the guards.

Maybe James or GRUNT have some info.

Thanks,

Go Irish, the only things you should be missing are the brush guards and certificate of authencity. The short answer is I don't have an ETA on the brush guards. You should not be missing any labels however.

As for mounting the Brush Guards, you can put away your duct tape and bubble gum. However you will have to drill the plastics. Where you ask? If you look behind the the body panels, you'll see the guides.

ETA on Brush Guards? - 2007/06/10 14:01 Any update on this? I hate keeping this on my ever growing "to do" list.
Could we conclude the "brush guard" story one way or another, please?!
