Battery Box Cables

I got the connectors of for the battery cables from my good friend Don Jarr on Ebay. He has a wide variety of high-quality resin R2 parts. I did not feel like scratch building these.

I got the "cables" from the miscellaneous bin of plumbing parts at our local Habitat Restore. A few cuts with the Dremel tool to remove the ends and few coats of paint and they are ready to go!

2014 Progress

Well, needless to say it has been a busy year and my blog has languished. But, fear not! Some progress has been made no my droid since last winter.

Here are some new pics of the battery box build. I found some cool bolts that may bot be club spec, but I really wanted to use them since they belonged to my Father-in-law. If he was still around I am sure he would be helping out with this build!
