Is there a FAQ on doing this? Where does one get hte connectors? Radio Shack? The local game store wants me to start doing theirs and I told them I'd see if I could do it or not. I want to kow how complex it is, and what is required. Anyone got a walkthru for me?

Thanks!

Shipping to Canada is INSANE from MCM!!! be warned maxlords! I am doing the same thing you are considering doing. It's really very easy.

If you order a large batch of pins (10 or more) there is no discount, but the shipping is about the same as it is for one. Plus you will pay duty. When all is said and done, expect the pins to run you about $14 to $15 CDN (and only that cheap if you buy a batch to spread the shipping around). They have some great security toolsets that are worth lumping into your order as well.

MCM's one the best places outside of eBay.
