5D IR conversion

So i want to convert my 5D by removing the glass in front of the sensor and replacing with clear glass to allow full spectrum imaging. Is there anyone in Australia offering this service?

That is why it is sometimes better to do it yourself, at least you know what you did to it, unless you know of someone who dose quality work.

There a couple on IIS that used to do it, but i wont mention names.
