Zulu - let us know how that turns out. I was thinking of making one myself, but I'm having trouble trying to find a plastic ring that size and perfectly round. I don't feel like paying $60 or more for an authentic one, sorry Yahoo! Japan vendors!

:| UpGarage sells them for ¥800. I have two at home, I can check the diameter on them. If they close enough to the real ones, there's your cheap alternative. :tu:
