(step by step)
Note 1: These chassis are for the current version of Roman Inception, elite or standard. There is an old version of this hilt which we never had in hands and thus don’t know if the chassis work with it. We unfortunately cannot provide support for this old Inception model.
Note 2: 30awg wires and smaller are mandatory for this install (30awg for main wires and 32awg for accent leds and switches are highly recommended)…. Oh and definitely use colored wires to make your life easier.
Note 3: These instructions will not cover how to wire the soundboard, make sure to learn how to by reading the manual. make sure to test your install along the way! Making sure everything works after important steps is better than having to dismount everything cause something wasn’t wired properly.
Note 4: This instructions will details the install as much as possible. Given the hilt structure, this install isn’t Beginner level. GOTH-3Designs cannot be held responsible for any mistakes made by DIYers tho. Thanks!
Note 5: Recharge port wiring reminder:
These instruction will cover the Sith Master Chassis installation. The Sith Apprentice chassis is more or less similar.
