Hey everyone! Nothing to big in this post just a update on the droid! Here is how it stands as of 05-13-2015. Legs will most likely be built, painted, and ready to install this weekend! The body will probably be painted by Monday or Tuesday and electronics in by Wednesday. Can't wait until DCC to see the group!

To build the legs you will need about 15 feet of 2x4 wood. You are gonna build the letter H with wood for the legs they will need 4 pieces of wood. Two pieces cut at 30 inches, one at 5 1/2 inches, and one at 9 inches. The two 30 inch pieces need to be standing vertical and at 13 inches up is where you want to put your 5 1/2 inch piece horizontally and the 9 inch piece needs to go on top.

To build the feet you will need some 2x4 wood and also some 2x2. Get the 2x4 and cut 4 pieces that are 8 inches long. now get your 2x2 and cut them as long as your 2x4 is wide. Put the 2x2 on the legs as shown in picture 1. Then get your 2x4s and cut a 45 degree angle off the top of them stating at two inches back and then line up the back of that piece with the back of your foot as seen in picture. When you are done take them off so you can put the legs threw the body on your droid and so you can paint the feet.

Next you want to put your legs in the droid and then you can start painting.

next you wanna put your leg covers on your legs and then put your feet on. You can put two coolant tubes both your feet if you want to you just drill a shallow hole in your feet and a hole in your body and glue the tube in.

to put the face plate in you just put it in the hole made for it hot glue it in and paint the hot glue so it looks like it was welded. Sorry I don't have pics for this stage.
