Share a pic of your PELICAN 1620 foam cut

I just purchased a Pelican 1620 case (foam inside). I didn't want to start cutting the foam without asking others what cuts they made. I figured if the ones that have gone through this share their ideas or images of their foam cut; That would help people like me make better decision on what I might fit into the case at a later time. Just in case I buy more accessories for my camera.

I did a search on the forum and found 2 images of this.
Here are the links.

Just to clear up, that first link is mine. In hindsight, I shoulda loaded the 3x vertically, to make room for an upcoming 16x. Oh well

I just ordered the Pelican 1610 from cases4less.com. Will this case do? I dont have many accesories so I am hoping it will be roomy enough.

Actually you can add one more to the 1st link:
http://www2.dj-miguel.com:8080/sp-pics/IMG_1675.JPG

I realized that I hadn't posted my own configuration of my 1650 case, I own a 1610 and a 1650 and when I went to the XL2, I couldn't stand the though of the tight fit with the 1610, not to mention that this case and cam just went to Florida with me to shoot a wedding and I needed to assure "survivability" at the hands of bag handlers.

The basic setup is similar to others seen here.
Clockwise from top left-

DEEP-Battery pocket (charger below with batteries above
1st FOAM- Sennheiser TX/RX Pack
DEEP-XL2 (Shotgun mic is laying under the viewfinder cozied up to the camera, cables for the charger are tucked in the rear, wireless unit is removed for travel only) Spare foam that came out when camera was fitted is used to brace the camera at the lens to keep it snug.
DEEP-NRG Varilux Pro and Frezzi MicroFill directly underneath it as well as spare bulbs and lower power bulbs for special circumstances.
DEEP-3x lens when 20x in use or vice versa.
1st FOAM-XL2 remote control for multi cam syncing
1st FOAM-Locks for case are above and to the left of the remote
DEEP-Misc cables, charger kits, head cleaners, lens cleaners mic cables, adapters etc.
1st FOAM-Wireless kit # 2 and cables.

Overall I'm really happy with the way this case came out. I'm going to be selling my last GL2 in the coming weeks and have opted to sell off the 1610 with it since I'm going to be purchasing another XL2 and would rather have another 1650 for that unit as well.

Am I the ONLY person who breaks down their camera after every shoot? I do not store it with a lens on. If I need a quick pick-up, I use the DVX-100B. I generally have 2-3 lens set-ups on every shoot, sometimes up to 8 or 10 depending on filters, locations, etc. When I break down the XL2 I can fit EVERYTHING into one Kata shoulder bag, that includes: 4 batteries, 10 filters, 20 tapes, XL2 body-viewfinder-mic, 20X OIS lens, 3X OIS lens, 16X manual lens, CPO Fisheye, dust blower, lens cloths, screwdrivers and Warmcards!

Jose, nice job on the play-by-play, thanks for the heads up on the 1620, I would have never considered it, now I just might. Actually you also just gave me a great idea, I have no place to put my still camera, I currently keep it in a shoulder bag, now with the 1620, I might be able to have the XL2, the Digital Rebel and might wireless and lighting in one box which would really simplify things for some shoots.
