I love a DIY project, I really do.  Great work, thanks for sharing!

 

You got some very nice blackwater shots too. I really need to try this myself.

The housing is bonded with acrylic. Of course, there must be a groove in which silicone rubber rings are placed. I just draw pictures for Taobao and Taobao help me make them. But it was also done three times before it succeeded.
Remove the photodiode from the flash and extend its wires. This allows the photodiode to be placed in front of the flash in the camera housing.
Take the button off the GoPro housing and put it on my housing.

Could you send/upload picture particularly of the connexion and buttons?
Thanks a lot for the information by the way

The buttons were dug from the GoPro housing, using this tubular bit. Stick it to the acrylic panel.
