    I like this. I've always liked the mold but if I even had one in this color scheme I'd like it 10 times more

    Would look a bit cleaner if you'd hacked off the other two lenses to get things to fit more closely, nuh?

    Hmmm, perhaps a few much smaller magnets spread about? Magnetix kits went clearance a little ways back.

    they are from magnetics kits, i have found a site which sell hundreds of different shapes and sizes of magnets so am considering buying them.
