Prepped Skin Panels for Gluing

I was short on droid-building time today, so I got little done.

The next thing I want to do is glue the skin panels onto the skins with silicone, but before I do that I need to clean them up.

The panels have been sitting face-up since I painted them in April, 2008. That means a lot of dust and grime needed to be cleaned off. Some moist paper towels did the trick.

Next, I needed to clean off excess silicone, along with primer, paint, oxidation, and other miscellaneous gunk, from the back edges of the panels, as this is the area that will adhere to the skins.

This took a lot longer than it looks, but hopefully the panels are ready to be glued down now.
