    Nope, not yet. Still waiting on the switches. That's one I got on a great sale at Legend a while back instead of spending almost 30 bucks on a BBV switch after shipping. THEN I stumbled over the guy who used the switches I have on order to fix his.

    "Back" on the Vapeshell, or "currently" on the Vapeshell?

    I'm still messing with both, trying some small differences here and there, so no final opinion for me. But so far for mtl, I agree Vapeshell.

    I got the rat black from B.M. and the nugget that is now broke from the boss. He gave it to me. It was working, but I won't get into all the details of what happened with it now.

    While trying to find a usable switch for the nugget, somebody posted somewhere that legend had them for 90 shipped which was the price of a few BBV switches. Once I had the new gold one, then one of the BB vets at ECF said he remembered a guy a couple years ago who had used a certain switch to fix his. The guy had old screenshots so I chased the other guy down who had fixed his and found out from him what switch he'd used. So these are the two working ones I have now until I get the switches for the still broken other gold one. Did ya follow all that? :confused:

    Considering their popularity and the fact that you can get just about anything for them fairly easy, it sucks that finding a switch for one is so difficult.

    I had it working and then the little tactile cap on the switch disappeared. BBV wants a lot for them, but was out. Gas City has them, but shipping from Canada is outrageous. (you would know)

    Gas City has the switch?

    If so you should have it shipped to me here in Canada. A switch would fit in a small bubble envelop that would only cost me a couple of dollars to forward to you. It's when you get into the bigger envelopes and the weight of a mod that things get expensive shipping from here. I'd even cover it as a Merry Christmas buddy!

    Thanks so much for thr tips @Pastorfuzz , you were right on both accounts. That tubbing is tight, but with some feathering it did go. And I'll be damned, Profile is flush :bliss: Game changers for me, especially going from one of my most hated bottles to one of my most loved :cool:

    @gsmit1 I retired 10 years ago... I still go to work once a week for an hour or so to mentor my partners. The company does pretty well thankfully. We are in the IT and Mobile technology game.

    Absolutely!


    Very worst case scenario is it winds up being a spare parts, guinea pig box. A thing I would still be grateful for. After a I get a couple things sorted, I may take you up on that offer too. I'd rather use the right part where I have a choice.

    I definitely wouldn't be putting another Lions button on a mod. Who'd want to admit to being a fan? :giggle: :giggle:

    J/K buddy (kind of) there's always next season and hopefully for you guys a healthy Stafford

    It's MOP right? I think it looks pretty classy, but of course aesthetics are all subjective. Where did you get your clear boro?

    thanx bro. its a clone, the originals looks like that. the clones have a not even and pitted finish, like they didn't do the machining after the mold. i sanded this one pretty good, then buffed it. i had a heck of a time finding what coils to run on it. i'm a coil :zombie:

    I want to thank you guys for posting all of your stuff about Billet Boxes. I'd thought about getting one at one point, but I'm so glad I never dove into that rabbit hole. They sure are nice looking mods.

    i thought i would take a turn or 2 out and see what happens. i could take more, if i put in my beer drink'n juice. i like chuck'n clouds when i'm drink'n.
    i'm liking this VV Pyro. the wicks/coils stay soaked, no leaking, pop the cap and there are the coils, super easy fill.
    i would like a V2 for my Overlord.

    Seems like a wise man told me that once. He was right.

    Since this is a handcheck thread, the Unholy V2 on my Baphomet with a pair of JBOI series aliens at 0.33 and a pair of Samsung 20s batteries. Secret is keeping the cotton juiced.
