          Thanks guys,.
          A lot of trial and error.
          Nothing fits, like it should be.
          The case must completely reworked to fit the gen Parts.
          The Rehaut must be thinned on a Lathe a bit to fit the gen Crystal.
          Rep Plexi is shit, as u can see on the Pics, weird cyclop and magnification.
          That's the next step to get it right.
          But at the End it will turn out good I think.

                      black is really difficult to find nowadays...

                          Great build! Are these Italian cases still available if so where?

                          ** I think I answered my own question and ordered something from ebay **

                              Here you can see that I broke the gen Spec but Aftetmarket Plexi
                              while installing.



                              The gen is 0,8mm thick on the edges the Rep is 0,6mm.

                              Also the Case has much rounded Lugs on Top.

                              So the whole Case need to reshaped
                              to look better.



                              Mine will be polished and completely
                              shaped and brushed to get a better look like this.


                              So this is not a Plug and Play Game.
                              Rep Tube and also the Pushers are not screwed in only pushed.
                              Gen Glass don't fit without work on the Case.
                              Chrono Hands need to wide a bit to fit on the gen Valjoux 7750.

                              Anyway, I want this one since ages.
                              First look is not that bad in my opinion.
                              But it must be better, keep u updated about my progress.

                              Thank you all.
