    OK, so I have been vaping for a while and there seemed to be a very small amount of people that have made any kind of steampunk-esque mods for their pv's. I am not totally sure on how to create my own mod, or what is necessary in doing so, so I decided to make a "sleeve" that would fit over my existing pv, which happens to be a 510 ego-c that I direct drip from. Being that I do plumbing work on a regular basis, and that my father is an accomplished jeweler, I came up with something that uses plumbing fittings and misc stuff to make what you see here.

    As you can see, I haven't fully figured out how to hide the button yet and put some sort of lever on it to replace it, but that will come later. What would you recommend as possible changes? I am open to critique!​

    Thank you! future plans for this include a lever like button that activates the Ego, as well as a secondary battery attached to a series of led's, to make the vent holes glow, as though is was a roaring boiler, hence steam. :)

    Love the design. Now can anyone make an ego-t or ego-c look like Dr. Who's sonic screwdriver? I'd like to see that.

    That looks really cool, perhaps you do a eGo twist next once you figure out the button and then you can make that bottom gear usable to adjust the voltage.

    Very nice work!

    It took me about 6 hours to do. I was lucky to have access to my father's jewelry making equipment, and if i didn't, I am guessing it would have taken longer.

    I'm pretty broke right now, so I'm shooting low, but you're right, something like that should probably sell for more.

    :::UPDATE:::

    I figured out the button! The lever shown goes through a hole in the copper sleeve... Whatcha think?
