I have a Bapezilla I was interested in having silicone recessed. I talked to a few modders (thanks Landon, Chaz, Pyrotecnic, a couple others) and the consensus was that the walls were very thin and it’s somewhat risky.
I was still interested in having a wider gap and possibly a less vibey yo-yo. The only solution I could think of was to cut the guts out of a plastic (maybe a celcon yyj or some other cheap plastic), open up the axle hole, cut it to fit flush with the body of the Bape and use it as a sort of SPR kit.
In the end I would imagine it would look a little like a Leviathan with the little step down in the gap. I have a few plastics I can use as modder fodder. If anybody’s willing to take on the challenge send me a PM. Name your price for the mod and if it doesn’t work out, no harm no foul the Bape will come to no harm, only a cheap plastic wasted.
