DIY tripod mount for GoPro Hero2

I got this idea from a Youtube video

I cut the mount base with a heated wood knife to prevent plastic dirt.
Then removed the melted plastic on the side of the mount base applying two sand papers, first was coarse one, then second was grade 1000 fine one.

Made a half inch long loop using a tape to secure the 1/4″ nut at the center of the base.

Covered the two long side holes of the base using a tape

Applied metal and plastic bonding material several times until it fills up all the low area around the mounting nut. I paid it 5,000 KRW (about $5 USD) which comes with two tubes, one is hardener, the other one is resin.
