When we were done this is what we had. A beefy center foot bracket that ties all three feet together.
Also here is a picture of DarthWill's belt for his A&A motor holders. I just ordered the same ones hoping it will solve my tire problems.
Today I was taking a break from frame building to show our newest local member Reaper10 how an R2 works. He was eager to help so i put him to work helping me and my friend cut angle iron and welding it together to make a center leg holder and outer leg holder for my droid.
Here is some cutting....That gas can is far away. It just looks close LOL.
Here is some welding......My poor R2 had no idea what was going on LOL.
I will have finished pictures of the brackets tomorrow so here is a funny vid of us goofing off.

And cut them to length.Next time we get together we will start cutting out all the Dadoes.

I also glued back on the finish layer of my foot that came off.Then I used the jig I made a while back to make some dowel holes for my ankle pieces.I then put the jig on the legs and drilled the corresponding holesEverything was dead on and a tight fit. Even without glue the ankle pieces were hard to get back off.
I also ordered two sets of John's R2 skins! Here is what they will look like.

The picture below shows the first spot which is easily fixed with some light shaving.But the real problem is that I am wedged against this outer bottom bolt and outer side piece of the motor holder. Plus....Plus the upper bolt and motor tab as well.When i mount the tire itself in a position that it is not hitting anything you can see i have way to much slack in the belt!
This is a reference picture to the size of the gear that is on my motors. Do I need a smaller belt? A bigger gear on my motors? Maybe both?
The item number on my belt says HTD-405-3M-12
