Final Assembly:

#9: Use scissors to cut out a 3/4 to 7/8 diameter disk from the black foam rubber sheet included in your EyePod kit.

#10: Use gap filling CA to glue the foam rubber disk to the raised section in the middle of the EyePod Base shell.

#11: Set the top shell of your EyePod into place (DO NOT GLUE YET!) and drop the camera ball turret in place. Use the ball to line up the loose inner structure so that the ball does not touch the outer shell. Once achieved, keep the inner structure in place by holding the ball down and gently slide off the outer shell.

#11: Glue the inner structure in place being careful not to let it slip out of place. (A trimmed but unassembled turret ball shell half is being used here, but the assembled ball can be used as well.)

#12: Once you have securely glued the inner structure in place, you may glue the outer top shell into the bottom shell per photo.

#12: You will also notice that the two wood dowels (supplied in your EyePod kit), have been installed. To do so, use a drill or a pointed round file to create the holes to allow the dowels to fit in as desired.

#13: Drill a hole in the center of the black foam pad. Feed the prepared elastic line into the hole.

#14: Pull the black elastic out the back. (A standard EyePod was used for this photo)

#15: Glue a trimmed piece of plastic tubing onto the elastic up against the back shell, pulling hard on the elastic so the fit is tight. Glue in place and hold until set. Trim any excess that sticks out beyond the back.

#12: Install dowels and you are ready to shoot!

Ok... please check me on this one! I've been up working since 2:30 AM m my eyes are burning, I feel like I have jet lag plus and I could have missed something... i wanted this to 'stand alone", but in reality, the building of this aerodynamic styled EyePod is just like the Standard one...

I'll try to get the email notice written up to send out, and i will post the notice and the announcement that I have sent them ONLY after doing so,, so don't be waiting for an email if you haven't read it here... if you read it here that i sent them and you didn't receive one... THEN, let me know! lol! I need a nap!

Ok... that's it for now! Thanks!
