At the time I created this tutorial, all tubes, scrapkits, etc were
in working links. Sorry if the links no longer work
With scrapkits, if the link or site is missing, choose a similar scrapkit

with any version of PSP. You need to have a good understanding of
your PSP program to do this tutorial.

You will need:
A tube - I used one of Arthur Crowe's male tubes
You need to be a registered member of Arthur Crowes store
to purchase his tubes, but any male tube will do.
