    Well, I finally got round to fitting a couple of upgrades. I downloaded Greg's dual fan shroud and modified it to work with a single extruder:

    I had a few printing issues with it and ABS, the supports weren't great and it became detached from the bed so I had to print with a raft too. The raft was a pain to remove and meant that the screws holding it to the carriage weren't long enough. After a lot of drilling and filing it got it to fit. I added a couple of vanes inside to try to split the flow evenly, it seems to work OK.

    I went to upload it as a remix to Greg's design and found SpoonUnit has beaten me to it! His print looks to have fixed the screw problem so try it here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1869814

    I've also installed my lighting for filming timelapses. Dimmable LEDs and they look neat too. If anyone wants to follow suit, I can post the sources of my bits and the files I used to make the end caps.

    OK, here's what I bought for my LED lights:

    Aluminium extrusion and frosted cap from http://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/illumisense
    I bought 2x1m lengths of the 16mm corner type but it looks like they've changed how they sell it now.

    LEDs, power supply, connectors and dimmer from http://stores.ebay.co.uk/jerrysukonlineltd/
    Very helpful, can recommend what goes together.

    The connectors I used are similar to these, but these are the wrong size I think:

    Also these to connect to the PSU:

    Dimmer:

    The end caps are attached.

    Be a bit careful with the wiring, despite checking and double checking at the end of a long day I still managed to blow a PSU............Doh!

    No big deal is was a separate thing for the lights not the BB PSU (should really have made that clearer above).

    It was only about £10 so not going to break the bank. If it was the BB one then I'd have cried, can't be without my baby ;o)

    Yes, I think they were Spoon_Unit's tablet mounts but I doctored them to take a switched extension cable. I use that rather than reaching around the back of the machine every time.
