Panasonic AVE5 video mixer_Glitch external patch bay

Finally done with my first bent AVE5.
Here are some pictures of the process.
As expected, cool thing is the ability to combine multiple effects.
Fader and trigger were also added.
Bend points tips come from Karl Klomp who's one of the first to attempt bending on such video mixers.
I only bent one source on my unit.Bending the two sources is of course possible but requires 25 DSUB sockets.If you bend only one source then a VGA-type socket(15 pins) will do.
Check video for a demo of effects produced.

Trickyest part on this project is definitely the soldering on the DSUB.

As I already explained on previous post you'd need to create your own connection cable as a normal VGA cable can't be used for patch bay purpose because of the ground pins connected together...
If you use a regular VGA cable, pins 4 to 12 will be useless.

In order to make it look good and not to get mad with ugly blobs messing up connections, tip is first use thin 1mm flexible wire and start soldering the center pins of the middle row.Proceed the same way with upper and lower rows.
