Finally got the 8400 for the Resident Evil project. Finished up the dye job on the button and top of the bezel today. Got a little dripping on the top bit of the bezel drown the grey strip by the lens a little bit it fit with the theme so it won't drive me crazy. Dyed and re-dyed these section repeatedly over the course of two days to get the jet black that i wanted. Cleaned the writing off the bottom side of the lense and am now just waiting for the new module. Spoke with the agent of Richard Bridgland who is the fellow who did the props and costuming for Resident evil, set design as well believe. Hopefully they will be able to definitively tell me what module was used for the movie, if not i have a back up plan though. Untill then i just painted the chrome bezel matt black and threw it back together to wear in the mean time.
Tell me what you think everyone! Very excited, all ready for the new green module and then it's done!
example from movie
they used paint in the movie so they got a little sharper edge but this dye will never wear off so i went that direction.
teaser for the next step. i'll update in this thread when i get it installed.
