Wheel Bearings Arrive

Got the bearings for the wheels Wednesday. Fortunately they fit.

Right now I'm working on finding the best way to mount wheels onto the drive bracket. This involves trying out different pieces of hardware (nuts, bolts, washers. spacers) to obtain the best free movement of the wheel. I have an idea on how I'm going to do it, but I need to do one or two modifications to the bracket at the shop this weekend. I'll explain the details of this once I'm done.
I'm also still repainting the foot shells. They're just about done. One more coat and then I can clearcoat them.

I have the same problem with no bearings. Where did you order yours? Were you at droidcon?

Yeah, I was at Droid-Con. I had the all wood R6. I got my bearings at Look in their bearings section for Item # BRG-608RS.
