Chrome R2D2 Update

  • Jan 21, 2012 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hello, today we will be cutting channels in our wood slats for the R2D2 body. The slats were all cut with angles last week, and it's looking cool. We will also be cutting out the panels in the dome. Last week, we got about 1/5th of the panels cut out. This week, we will get the rest done. After they are cut, we will need to file the cut edges. We will also need to somehow sand or sandblast the entire dome for chroming. If somebody has a sandblaster or file, we could really use it. Soon, we will have the electronics for sound, so some people can be downloading/editing sound files for the R2 to make. For instance maybe "Help me O-Beer-Wan, You are my only Hop." This week is unique in that after the meeting there is an Artwalk at 7 PM. If you'd like to stay and enjoy some beer, as well as partake from the gourmet food trucks, I'd love to have you. We can discuss the pinball project at the artwalk too. The Rebel Unit 727 North Poinsettia St Santa Ana, CA[masked]

    We made awesome progress on the R2 this week, picture coming. The group members are awesome! I did list the time as 7 on accident though, oops! It was 2PM. 7PM was the artwalk. Kudos to the new people that came at 7. I hope we at least entertained for your visit. Next time, I'll make sure it always says 2 PM.
