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.

Talked to Izzy today, and it was like he was speaking a different language. He said I needed holoprojectors, PSIs and logic displays (front and rear btw)!?! I tried to act like I knew what he was talking about, but had to look it up on astromech.net afterwards.
The ‘New Member Central’ forum has a wealth of information, here is the link to the R2 part terminology, who knew there were 23 parts on the leg alone?
I joined two websites today to help in my build quest. There is so much information its almost daunting to try and start. Figured I should read up on droid building while I wait for the dome to be delivered in April.
