It's just with Kevin discs so very scarce, I'd hate to have to have one cannibalized in order to make a 'perfect' CLU disc, if the Rinzler rings are good enough. I'd rather that Kevin disc be in the hands of a fan, instead of torn to bits just for the plastic rings. Though there's still that perfectionist part of me that would want it pulled from the white rings, just so it matches more solidly. Hrmm.
What would a CLU disc built from the Rinzler base run me, cost-wise?
Edit: The CLU in your posted images is built from the Rinzler base, right?
Yes, the pics of my CLU disc are from a Rinzler base. When the lights are on it looks like a standard Rinzler disc, but with the lights off the yellow LEDs shine through pretty well and I don't really notice any orange.
In my neck of the woods, there have been no Kevin or Rinzler discs for a while - I've been using some stock I built up through many, many, many Target runs. I still have a couple Kevin discs left and one Rinzler disc though, so I'd be willing to use those as the base of a modded disc for someone.
I haven't posted pics yet, but I did "hack" up a Kevin discs for it's rings... and it looks *awesome*. In my case, I wanted a white plastic disc with blue rings so I went ahead and added the leftover clear rings in an black disc - and both discs look great. I did this for a custom disc I used (along with a custom Kevin-like jacket & custom disc mount) I wore for my trip to elecTRONica.
You can see some pics of my jacket here
cost would vary depending on the exact mods you wanted but a Rinzler disc base, plus LED change, plus 2 extra LEDs would be in the $35 + $50 + $1 range (I'll throw in the labor for 2 extra LEDs free with the other mods)... for a total of $86 plus shipping.
I only have 1 Rinzler disc left... so it's first come, first serve... past that, it's either EBay or provide your own disc...
