A good portion of the weekend was spent cleaning the garage in prep for some awesomeness! OH… I was able to get a few things done on the project as well!
More holes to be cut for LEDs
More greeblie placement – unlike the original prop, if we’re designing greeblies, we have to design each one to actually mount to the panel – not just adhere with super glue. That’s the ONLY sure way the part/greeblie will stay in place and not fall off during transport, handling, etc… So… Marking out holes
Another new greeblie finding its location
1″ tiles in place
More Greeblies getting prepped
Lots of sanding and filling on this guy!
Then it was back to pin stripes
I had a tough time working around the bolt heads
Back to greeblies – the nose panel box bases
Prepping for silver paint
I hate dust
I LOVE how this greeblie turned out but I accidently adhered all the layers together… Many of the parts are different colors… UGH
So I tried to tape the sections off
It looks good but I have to start over…
More misc greeblies getting ready for some silver
Getting a coat of black – the nose panels greeblies are pure flat black with a touch of white – easy!
These greeblies came in the mail!
We designed and laser cut a new “I bolt” greeblie to screen match
Nose panel greeblie almost ready for primetime (still have to paint the middle greeblie white)
Scott and Jessie popped over to help and Scott did some practice wiring
Back to the greeblies
The nose panel boxes are getting CLOSE
This little greeblie baffles me…
For the past several MANY months me and a buddy have been helping a co-worker get her home prepped for sale. Almost every weekend was spent renovating – we’re exhausted. We finally finished and, aside from a happy homeowner, partial payment resulted in my spending most of Saturday and early Sun morning cleaning the garage so I could make room for a few new toys!
