For the SD range is this mod different to another you were working on? In one of your posts you mentioned that the older machines will be sort after due to a mod you were working on.

It will work on all the detectors after the SD2000 ,  yes and yes it can all be done but like any upgrades the later the detector the more trimmings you get.  I am uploading a few more videos on how to get the performance better than any standard detector.

  Well, I bought that used 3500 and am getting ready to pack it up and send it to you for all the new mods.  Your website mentions an order form to fill out and send with the detector but I cannot find that form on your site.  How do I access and get the form to come up so I can print it.
Thanks
Wes Hawkins

 Sounds good Woody I'll do that.  My friend Mike said he called you today and is going to send his 5000 to you for mods.  He saw how good my 2100 runs and I mentioned I was sending this 3500 I just bought to you.  He wanted to get the 7000 and I said just send in your 5000 to Woody and get it modded. 
Thanks again.
Wes.

Hi Woody,

Checked out the vid and impressive results. Love to see the next vid showing this mod with a front end gain and the effects with a mono and a double d.

I have actually improved on that performance by carrying out some component changes, found some lossy multiplexer ic's in the design 250 ohms, swapped out for 30 ohm, the noise floor drops and the signals just get more clear, still ground balances with a bucket of iron granules.   I might have to seriously go out detecting, I am starting to impress myself.

  And you can get the same results from modifying a GP 3500??
