Quoted from docquest:
I got the crane mod second hand without instructions but haven't gotten around to installing it yet. Based on your recent experience with it, how would you recommend installing it?
Doc, I bought 2 cranes, 1 for my Brother's pin and the other for mine from Mezel-Mods with some KISS mods too (Fig 1), and to be honest the 3M that comes on top of the cranes are useless so I filled the top with UGlu(that clear crazy glue in tape).
When I tried to install it, the mod stopped about 1/2 of an inch behind instead of the "L" corners.(Fig 2)
I checked the reason and it was the electrical cables including 2 in diagonal(I was assuming that the Mod was made knowing that, but no. (Fig 3)
To be able to place it well, I had to cut the left top corner, front left corner, one of the diagonal in the same left side, and 2 cuts in the left bottom.
I told my Brother to wait till Sunday to see if his crane cables are same as mine, if he decides to cut the Mod I will post pics Doc.
The result (Fig.5)
