I'd say you did an excellent job Floyd! One of the better ones I've seen of this.

AP900 Case, on the cheap!

Posted By Robert Watters

Looks good Floyd.

The only thing I would mention is to not let that RA motor box rub or hit the side wall of your case. Make sure the mount is padded firmly enough to not let it move at all towards the side wall of the case or you'll find yourself re-meshing that worm in the dark some night. :C
One of the more common complaints we get is when someone buys a mount used and they have a motor stall situation when they fire it up the first time. It's usually the results of improper packing from the seller and one of the motor boxes took a slight bump from the shipping company.

It's not a big deal to re-mesh (as you've found out) but if it can be prevented it's a good thing. grin
