Here are the directions I used. I had to modify mine a bit. I have an sb900 and it was too big for the gutter thingy and I wanted something plastic so I used some sort of an ele box. Also I didn't need the velcro because it is a snug fit. I will try it out this weekend and post some before and afters.

although mine didn't go quite as smooth in the making as his sounded like it did. There was a little swearing here and there
I was going to take pictures of my progress as i went but forgot pictures for certain steps

Looks like this will work fine. My only question is what is the dish made of and where can you find one?

Haven't really got a chance to play with it much yet. It is a large plastic potting bowl, any kind of home improvement store carries them

Hey Savina! I am planning on using it this weekend. I don't have a diffuser for the front but I think it will work fine anyway. I will post after
