Time to start prepping the aluminum foot shells for painting on droid #2.
I started off by sanding the paintable surfaces with 150 grit sandpaper.
Next up, cleaning them up with acetone.
All nice and shiny.
I temporarily reattached the half moons for the outer foot shell doors, in order to help properly locate the side details and strips. I loosely laid out the parts to locate them. Hopefully Gorilla Glue will do the trick.
I applied the Gorilla Glue to the back of the parts, and smeared it around with a toothpick.
Hopefully these will hold.
Oh yeah, I forgot I gouged a hole in the center foot shell with the Dremel.
Let's fill that with some JB Weld.
And a razor blade smooths things out.
Before I paint the outer foot shells, I still need to widen the holes for the knurled hose fittings, as the predrilled holes in the foot shells don't match up with those in the foot strips.
