Rising Damp…

Posted in ROTJ by urbaninteractive on October 29, 2009

Hhhmm just discovered that my garage isn’t very water tight. It rained a lot here over the past few weeks, a lot more than usual. Anyway I noticed that a very small part of the cab came into contact with water. Thankfully its at the back and out of sight, but it has swollen a bit. I don’t like the idea of having the cab now in the garage for much longer as winter sets in. In the meantime I have raised the cab off the floor and swept the floor to dry it out as much as possible. Will try and seal the areas where the water came in as well. So the plan is to get the thing at least assembled, painted and in the house before Christmas. I will then carry on inside the house with putting in the electrics and applying the art work.

In the meantime I have pretty much finished cutting all the wood I need for the shell of the cab. I will fix it all in place this week, and then start filling any gaps. I also cut the slots for the T Moulding. This went much easier than I thought. I simply lay the cab on its side and whizzed around the edge with a router with a slot cutter bit. It made really easy work of it and the cut is really nice. Below is a picture as of last night. The two holes in the top are for the speakers. That board will be covered with black material and then a speaker grill. Im still on the hunt though for the best matching grille.

The lights are on

For the next two weeks Im away in Brussels, and will have a few free evenings. Hopefully in that time I do some coding on the actual game 🙂
