I got a couple of panels added on the back of the dome.
I added the 1 around the red light area and 1 of the Aluminum
colored ones.

Well..maybe I'll sneak in some R2 time while I'm working on the basement.

In this pic I posted it shows the picture frame around the opening.
Most buiders leave this area Aluminum.
But Pixelfriend found a clip from the movie and it showed this area lighting up in red.
I studied the movie and found the same thing.
It's in the part with the Ewoks and Solo trying to open the blast doors in the forest. Then R2 gets blasted and the red area lights up.
Theres somewhere else in the movie it show it light up also.
I'm looking for some Plexiglass 2 way mirror to use, So when it's not lite, It will be shinny like my dome.
