Rewiring Dome





I moved a few things to the dome instead of the deck I had built on the dome ring.

The reason I did this, I'm working on the Periscope and noticed alot of things were getting to close to the area where the lift for the Periscope will be mounted. Also I want my dome to have easy access, Once I get all the wiring complete there will only be 3 main power lines to disconnect and the dome can be lifted off the body.

I know weight in the dome area is something to keep in mind, But I'm trying to keep it balanced around the dome. There's still many items to add to the dome and I figure by time I add servo's and all the extra goodies the dome will be pretty full.

Now you're just showing off!!! Haha kidding.

Looks like you used JB weld to attach some things to the dome. I've been wondering what I will use.

Yeah I did use J.B. here and there, But I try to stay away from it as much as possible.
I really did'nt think there would be so much wiring to do until I started adding the goodies.
