Cut in handholds and painted the skid this past weekend. We are ready for transport!
Seeing that R2 doesn’t fit into the back of my Traverse, I needed a way to transport him laying down. Borrowing heavily from Mr. Sparkle’s R2.0 skid design, I built my own skid that allows me to finally take R2 somewhere without having to bum a ride from Izzy. I need to add handholds and sand/paint the skid but here is pictures of it so far. I plan to use weatherstripping to cushion the edges that R2 rests on.
