I've already rubber dip coated the base and will probably spray the other parts with a flat black paint to take some shine off. The cable works great. When you first push the cable in, it locks at the half shutter position every time, then if you push a little further it trips the shutter. No complaints and so far no problemo. Well by fer now.

PS might get a right angle adapter later. PLEASE don't tell the wife
