Now, you may be wondering where I'm putting these fans, well I went out on the edge and cut into my bucket and I have had several comments saying " Why hasn't anyone done this before?" Well I don't know if anyone has done this before but it sounded like a good idea.

I used the rear traps, they put fake vent decals on so I figured why not make them functional, so I did.

I first took a ruler and pencil and drew vertical lines on the traps.

I then took my Dremel with a plastic cutting wheel and very very carefully cut the pencil lines I just drew.

The lines are not perfect, this serves two purposes, the hand painted vents are NOT perfect and the movie accurate traps are NOT perfect either.

The fans fit right in behind those vents and pull air out of the bucket just like they were meant to do.

Wow I didn't realize how long it's been, The wireless system is working well but because of the close proximity of the mic to the speaker there was a considerable amount of feedback at a volume you could hear me, so I needed to rework my system to try and reduce the noise. On a updated note I got my trooper voice board it is very cool with all it's features but it's challenging to learn how it all works.

I will get pics up and more info on the wireless system still trying to get all caught up after Christmas and New Years. Please enjoy the music while your party is being reached.
