I sent the message below to BD but received no answer.	Has anyone in 
the field tried such a modification?

Surely some lab has figured out a way of easily getting to the neutral 
density filter holder on the Vantage.  The DiVa upgrade seems to have 
made an awkward situation even more so what with additional wires in 
front of this slide-out holder.

Has BD thought of attaching a half-moon shaped recepticle to the front 
of the forward scatter diode?  Then, all you would have to do is pull 
out the scatter detector and add filters to/or remove them from the 
holder.  No more need to slide the present holder in and out.

Any thoughts/suggestions?
