that one off mm is the one mm that gets in the way. if its just a mm then get some sand paper and remove it.

everything matches up except for the screws that it floats on, what if i modified the floyd? like trimmed it so it would fit?

Bad idea. Messing with metal isn't coolio, yo.

In all honesty, 1 millimeter is an OK margin of error. Any woon short of lignum vitae will likely give to accomadate it.

Basically, the only problem is that the stud mounting hole are one mm firther apart or closer togther than they should be?

If that is the only problem, then you can just fill the holes witha dowel and glue, and redrill them....

the fat10 is 73mm, and an ofr is 74mm, so they're closer than they should be

Ok, worst comes to worst, you have to force it a wee bit, or, you buy a thrity-five cent dowel, glue it in the holes, sand those flush, then re drill the holes.

The endtire endeavour would take ten minutes of work and a night of drying time.

No. The floyd sits in a recessed cavity, which is usally lined with foam rubber or shabilly painted plack, because it isn't often seen.

OtterEDIT:

If the floyd cavity is painted, then, it is just that, a cavity. All you would need to do is cover the rest of the body and do a couple quick coats of spray paint.
