    Hi Jeff, here is the guide sarge made to take the clocks apart looks quite simple to me
    http://www.a2oc.net/forum/showthread...ks)&highlight=
    If you give me your email address i will send you a photo of Kane from the a2 freuns clocks that ktec did, they look great and he was the one who put me in touch with the company. I am next going back home where they are at the start of april so if you don't mind waiting i will ship them and then you can pay me via paypal, seems fair instead of you paying me now and waiting weeks!! anyway drop me your email address and i will send you the pictures and kanes email address if you want to speak to him about them
