This blog tracks and displays my R2-D2 building progress! Made almost entirely of aluminum, the goal is to build an autonomous, PC powered robot that will "act" like the R2-D2 we all know from the movies!

Rear skins, other side mounted up!
Tonight I worked on the other side of the rear skins.
It went pretty smoothly but I found I needed to add a bolt to the bottom of each side to keep things flush....
Here's where I am at now. I think I will work on resolving the side vent area by drilling lower, into the frame ring. That will require some clever patch work, but easier to do now then later.
My next dilemma is making the back panel piece fit. More on that next time
