Applied Foil Tape to Eye, Battery Boxes Arrive

Now that the paint is dry on the dome ring and large data port, I was able to place them back on the droid.

I finished up the radar eye tonight by using an Xacto knife to cut some thin strips of foil tape and applying them to the grooves in the radar eye.

Craig's awesome PVC battery boxes arrived today. There's no way I would have been able to make these myself.

You know those holes behind the panels gave me an idea.
I wonder if an automotive interior door panel clip would work?
It would hold tight and from inside the dome you could release them.
Did you use the silicone or tape on the larger panels?

I'm not sure about the interior door panel idea. If it's what I'm thinking of, I wonder if it would be prone to wiggling a bit? But I would encourage experimentation with any creative ideas you have.

I actually haven't secured the panels permenantly yet, but when I do (hopefully sometime this week) I will use tape wherever it will fit, and silicone on the dome panels that are too small to accommodate tape.
