Hey everyone,

I just finished the a major step in my custom Lego Nexus 5 dock. And i wanted to share my project with everyone.

Now, first i would like to say thank you to kidgenius http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2545350 &
Fallon9111 http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2586566 for their projets. Without them i would not have come up with this project.
