Cutting aluminum skins

Keeping the momentum going is important to get an operational robot. So I try to get a little done every day if possible. Tonight I trimmed the parts out of my aluminum skins. At first it was difficult until I found the correct razor blade knife that allowed me to cut the tabs for the thin inner pieces. I made sure to label all the pieces and where they came from on the skin. I then stored them in a box. I got most of the front inner and outer skin trimmed and the rough edges were filed smooth.

I guess I need to start figuring out which doors I'm going to make that open and close. Laying the trimmed skins on the frame looked really cool. Enough for tonight ...
