Hi Folks,

I want to remove the plastic covers from my cube so I can paint them to match my
scope. The small phillips head screws turn but do loosen. Also, I don't know
how to remove the the scope mount bracket.

I picked up the cube used so I don't know if the original owner did anything to
affect the screws.

It has been a great little performer. I don't have the original tripod but
rather made an adaptor out of Corian on my lathe to fit the cube on my gitzo
tripod. This combo works very well. So I don't want to destroy it just to get
the covers off.

Any advice?
