Today I tested out some different colors of brown for my R2. I like the dark leather brown on the left but it is to glossy.
I also bought some items for my GONK droid while at the store.
Here is a close up of the charger I use for my 12 volt batteries. They trickel charge and have a float built in so you don't over charge.
I cut out a hole in the top tub of the GONK to recess the front panel into. Later I will cut the rest of the small tabs off.
I then cut some 2x4s and glued them together and some 1/2 inch MDO.
I will show some pictures of how everything is supported later but here is the mock up so far.
