    Hey Tom - I actually haven't thought about it.... It's all hand painted... and the original red's kinda showing through from being "tossed" around a bit.... I might fill it with a silicon Sunface.... :D

    Looks good to me. My Sunface (actually NKT275 modded Dunlop) is in a plain, folded aluminum box which is a pain to change batteries, but I just couldn't justify that big, ol round pedal, or the weight!

    It does look like Mike endorsed the rehoused pedal. Did he? Do you care either way? Does he?

    I wouldn't use some other company's name on something I hacked. *shrug*.

    Yeah Id have to agree with Alex - thats the same box Mike uses for his handmade pedals --- so that looks more like a custom Analogman pedal than a rehoused Dunlop......

    Actually, I didn't get Mike's "approval" for it. I don't want to come across as I'm ripping off his name or logo's. I just wanted something that looked similiar to his. Since I couldn't repro the sun logo, I just did the simplier version. The guts are in fact Analog.Man's. If I were ever to sell it (doubtful), I would state that the box was done by me and it's not a "custom" 1-off. I'm in no way trying to scam or infringe on any laws.

    OHHHHH.... Don't get me wrong, it looked cool as hell, but man it was heavy and it took up a lot of room... My pedal board was close to 65 lbs..... That's about as much as my amp....
