haha, axe you are correct. i knew that the eye holes went through the body completely, but i never have had both of my eye covers off at the same time...still can't get over how good they are. i just took out both of the cover screws and they do in fact go through.
sloonan, you are 100% good on not needing any mods to the body of the marker. now the slight chore might be finding eyes, after thatfinding or making covers wouldn't bee too complicated. if you look around in some old threads, you might find someone who was parting out a dits for eyes, covers and cover screws. if not, scenario dreams probably can help you with the eyes and even a male piece for the board. screws can be sourced from ace or other places, and most anymetal shop should be able to cover the eyes and the wires nicely.
