I have gone with the Lacesensor build...partly because I wanted the original build.

I asked as somel others did if there were any more boards coming along for the lo profile dop....there was no reply so that was another reason for doing the Lacesensor build.

I am fairly well on with the build, when its finished it will be good to see how close the two builds are.

Just an update... 

Ngyaaaaaaah!!!  Cant get it to fit in the box since I didnt board mount the switches.  Its on hold at the moment as Im working on a stagefright and a harbinger at present. 
Im trying to decide between keeping it in a BB and board mounting the switches or putting it in a taller box.  Hows everyone else getting on with their Doppelganger?
125bb or 1590bb?

Its in a 1590bb at present and a 125bb is not wide enough for the pcb.

Actually im thinking about keeping it in a 1590bb and putting the switches on the side of the enclosure, im not really into tall enclosures and switches on the side would look cool.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing.
Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.

Heres the new layout. Side switches apart from the LFO switch at the front.
Fingers crossed....

Hangingmonkey, have you done a test fit in the new box?

And for the old box... massively modified rat or muff or TS with the standard 'modded' lotsa switches aesthetic? :)

Crazy as it sounds, I've 'bogged' botched drill jobs on enclosures before using automotive panelbeater's filler... works a treat and takes the paint well.

The test fit works.
I like the idea of a super modded TS, might give that a try.

Hmmm, i have a load of boxes with errors from my early years which i havent got rid of. If the filler works im interested. Can you recommend a product?

This the stuff I use, just came from our local hardware store in NZ.  It's 2-part, a light brown paste and a red curing agent which you mix together in the desired quantity... it turns pink and dries pretty rapidly, in about 20 mins or so.  Its quite strong stuff you can trim with a knife or chisel, and sand if required once set.

I would tape the inside of the hole, apply filler and remove the tape and sand to a smooth finish once it's dry. It's surprisingly durable, particularly effective at the smaller holes obviously.  One warning is, don't try bake dry the paint on an enclosure that's been filled... trust me on this  ;) :-[
