Since the button pad was missing on my UL frame I needed to fill in the middle hole since there is a chance for rain this weekend, don't want anything shorting out.

That is better than having the stock ones! On my UL's, there isn't hardly any button exposed. Nice job!!

:up: I really feel like I could do a lot of the mods you do, but what astounds me is that you have all of the materials and tools around to do it, and do it often.
