That's a nice idea Bro!
I also bought a rondo music case for my pod hd500
and it fit really nice and I still has some extra space for futures pedal... I also bought the line6 volume pedal for the PEDAL 2 and it works nicely too... THe idea you gave is a really good but what idea was remong the feet and i use velcro (no the one they provide) and i attached it like that....
At the beginning i was dispapoing it about cause it was moving but when i bought extra and new one it kind of stick hard and now my pedal is great man...
Your idea is really good but for me it will not work
Just want to share it
and thanks for the INFO!

Good work, those Rondo cases are quite a bargain.
I did one of those for my XT Live a few years ago, but I put ALL the feet on the outside!

Great stuff, Varmint.
I thought about this as well, but got lazy
In hindsight, I might have liked the larger case like you have. I could then cram a few more gadgets and pedals in the back of it. Oh well. Next time.

Thanks for the tip on the case I am very pleased with the price and quality but I have a question on the mounting. The original screws are size 4 on the hd 500 rubber feet and has
coarse thread not sure of the pitch. I went to find some longer replacements but only found 4/40 screws but the thread was to fine the line 6 has coarse thread. How did you get the 6/32 to screw in? Did you tap it out to the larger size?

Glad you're getting some use of your case. Mine is getting lots of use and already has lots of dents and bumps - but it looks cool and road tested
I was lucky enough to find the perfect thread at a specialty "fastener store" here in Ottawa, Canada. They were able to match the thread perfectly so I didn't have to re-tap anything. Good luck on your search!

Actually the 6/32 worked perfectly - the 6/32 fit perfectly i don't know how or why but no re-threading neccessary. Thanks for the tip and pictures they were a tremendous help.

Thanks for the great post! The step-by-step detail is great, along with the side diagram. I just got one of these cases (the black version) and should be picking up my new HD500 tomorrow. I'm hoping to be able to drill the case holes without removing the back of the unit for a template. I don't want to run into any warranty void issues should the need arise.

@samlimster, thanks so much for your detailed post, it made my project go a lot faster. I use several outboard pedals and an expression pedal with my POD HD500, so I went with the extra long case shown here: http://www.rondomusic.com/pdc410h.html (note I changed this link, the one I had previously listed was wrong...)
Took a printout of your picture to the hardware store to buy screws & washers, which all fit perfectly and according to your specifications. I ended up using 5 of the mounting holes under the POD, I just couldn't get to the center-front one. There were also a couple of screws (with feet) holding what looks like a corrugated metallic barrier inside the POD, possibly to give support to the PC board. I remove the feet from those two screws, which I replaced with flat & lock washers. I ended up with three extra rubber feet. Since this case is so wide, I was worried about the short-legged chair syndrome, so I placed those extra 3 rubber feet on the far corners of the case, for stability.

Great stuff, millemj!
Glad it worked out for you. In hindsight, I'm starting to wish I bought the bigger case so I could fit a few more bits and pieces in. The rubber feet from the Pod are starting to wear down from sliding around in the trunk of my car. I may need to replace these at some stage. But other than that, I've been using this case twice a week for a whole year and it has held up well.
