Lots of forward progress! Once again Jessie was a HUGE help to me by cutting lots of greeblies! THANKS J
I really enjoyed weathering one of the greeblies from a few posts back do I decided to jump in and give a few of the pure silver painted greeblies some weathering
Painted this guy
Then added some weathering
Grunge VS Clean – I like the simple grunge look (after all, this was a used universe)
More painted greeblies
2 of the newly cast matte boxes – Hey Fuzz! Be on the lookout!
Still trying to figure out the best pot knobs
Worked on the wall art pieces
This was frustrating! None of these little 1/4″ acrylic squares didn’t fit… UGH
Another new greeblie – the 1/4″ orange trim piece adds a bit more depth
Covers plates for the old LED holes
Jessie also cut this cover piece for the lower part of the Garrard Trim plate
All these little acrylic squares were cut and applied
Finally got around to designing / cutting the new throttle housing
Black acrylic cover gives it that smooth industrial look!
I had an idea for this greeblie so Jessie cut a second one
We cut 30 holes for the wires to feed – but I was 4 holes short… UGH… More on this later
LED panel covers and the Garrard Trim plate finally getting a second layer of black
LOVE IT! That acrylic piece fits right in! I love the laser cutter
A few more layers of paint needed
I then shifted gears to getting these panels back together – still work to do on them
I then put the nose panels back on – this was NOT easy. There is so much shifting and warping
The seat is STILL a bit too high. We’re going to have to fab a new seat post
The edges of the seat should bump the shelf
I then built these lower nose panels
Sadly… the angles are off – AGAIN! WHAT HAPPENED!? UGH I have to figure this one out!
Once I pull the panels off I’ll finish up the shelf
To give you guys an idea of just how much BIGGER she is…
This is from Oct 3, 2013
And this is how she looks NOW!
So much left to do! I’m getting the files ready for the new door, door frame and surrounding areas! So there’s always something going on.
