Attention: This modification is not by me but by my friend Jerry. He don't have a TP account & don't know much English at all. So he ask me to make a post & translate for him. For the original post on mf8 forum you may take a look at here

Here is my translation:

I didn't do any MOD recently. As I got some missing link, I decide to use those missing link to do a simple mod: Change those tiles on Misisng Link into sticker. I thought this will be a simple mod at first but soon found not as easy as I think.

First step, Taking the tiles out. I asked my friend the inner structure of Missing Link & then disassemble it. Over so many years they're still very tight.

Second, Glue. As these missing link has been over years so there're some place broken. I use glue to glue them back.

Third, Sanding. Mainly sand down the Chain-like picture, plus some edge side which will affect sliding.

Fourth, make a new cap. I cut & sand a similar size plate. Let it to be a new cap of the missing link.

Fifth, Placing the cap on top and bottom. Require some break in.

Last, Stickering. I'm using Ayi's 3 layer cheese's stickers. Those rainbow color style seems good. and then put on the original logo, done~

Hope you like it.

otischeng: I hope the translation is not too bad..... :D

Very pretty, the sanding sounds like a lot of work!

Nice job Jerry!
