Sorry for the delay in posting. I didn't get much time this week to work on R2.
I am still trying to solve my leg rod problem, but decided to take a break from it until I get a few other things completed.
I started to work on some electronics. In this picture I have pulled the wire through the legs. I also did this because I needed to find out if there was enough room for the legrod and the wire.
I picked up some sheet metal, and mounted several of the electronic parts. R2 is upside down.
