Hawaiian style Mini help

So, I've dremeled the center of the rail and got the asa flipped; but now the 13/3000 bottle is hitting the access screw on the foregrip.

For those that have been successful with this mod, did you have to shim the front of the asa, or was there another route taken to avoid this interference?

TIA,
Daniel

you have to loosen the two small set screws inside the posts of the asa mount allowing it to sit slightly lower off the frame of the grip.

I have the Empire Relay on/off on mine and didn't have the problem. Go with what Jato says and if you have a problem with any form of leaks, use a beefier O-Ring on the Transfer tube tip that goes in to the Reg.

Jato's plan worked, then I decided to run my 68/45. Plus I might be moving to an Axe board here soon if the 7th Element board doesn't fit the Mini's front grip.

Thanks for the heads up on the Empire reg.

I recently ordered a 7th Element LED board for my Mini. It was a tight squeeze because they put 12 feet of wire on the battery harness, but it should fit if you take your time. I don't have experience with their new Pathfinder boards though.

The OLED screen is in the Axe door, and I dont want to tackle trying to get the Axe door to fit the Mini foregrip. To be honest, I 'm betting the Axe foregrip will hang down the same distance, as the door lines up almost perfectly. Its the mounting screw location that flubs the whole deal up. Either way, it might still be possible to do with that new Axestenz extension. We'll see when all the parts arrive. I'll keep you guys posted when it comes together.
