    Hi Spatiumtemporis,

    May I ask where you have the mid case modified, and what work has been done on it? I've tried to contact modders in this forum about this, but without success. Would appreciate if there' s any information of modders who will reshape the noob daytona mid case.

            The case was modified by myself. I used a miny improvised lapping setup to be able to reshape the top part of the lugs. The sides were also modified using the same lapping technique.

            The case is pretty close to the real deal in my opinion. Check my 116520 dial thread. I've posted some comparison pics on the latest posts.

            For anybody curious if the Gen markers are a straight fit or not, they aren't, feet need to be shaved and markers need to be glued in place

            I can't mod other peoples cases cause I don't have time to do it anymore but I may part with this piece eventually.

            It's not that obvious what the diff are between the Gen and noob case but once you get familiarized with the Gen case you'll be able to tell what needs to be modified.

            Hope this helps

                Thank you. After reading your 116520 dial thread about the case reshaping, I can only admire your skills and dedication to perfection knowing that I will never be capable of doing the same to my noob case.

                        Can experts advice that if it’s possible for me to build up a 4030 movement on zenith el’s movement? If lets say i have a franken with some modify parts to fit gen hands and dial.

                            Hi,

                            I have a franken noob 116520 with gen dial, hands, and bezel. I finally got hold of a gen case. Is it a simple task to swap the noob case with the gen one? Does it need any modification on the sa4130 movement or the case ring?

                                Yes it is a straight swap, and please let me know when you're ready to sell the noob case - I'll take it
