The short and sweet: I like OLED boards, I hate Tadao panel grips. Does anyone know of a tutorial for cutting wraparound grips for an OLED? Its specifically for G6R wraparound grips on a Vic V1 with a Tadao OLED.

just get an razor blade, a pair of steady hands and start cutting. Make sure you measure twice and cut once... ;) Just gently cut away till your exact measurements are the ones you want.

My problem is how I deal with the plastic backing and cover the hole to keep paint out. I figure a dremel will solve the first problem, but would something like a thin piece of lexan put in place with epoxy work to cover with?

I was thinking take some material off the inside and have it overlap and epoxy that on. IDK about the fit though, I'd need to find something transparent and thin enough.

^plus the material you use for the window may "sweat" and fog up on hot days.

My friend did this with his etek 3 grips. He cut out the window with a exacto knife and they took that plastic packaging that is impossible to cut with scissors and cut a small portion and just put it under the grips and when he screwed the grips back on the plastic stayed in place.
It is not my prerogative to please you.
