Next job is to get the electronics installed, which means cutting and drilling holes in the bowl.

First I drew a template in CAD for the jacks. The photo is kind of blurry, but you get the idea.

Test fit of jacks.

I used spray glue to secure the printed template to the side of the bowl.



Jack holes all drilled and ready for installation.



The Optima needs a molded mount to be glued to the inside of the bowl and a hole cut for the face plate/outer mount.

Mount location is marked on the inside of the bowl.

I also marked the location of the hole for the battery box.



Holes for Optima and battery box are cut.



The area where the mount is glued to the bowl is masked off.



And, roughed up with 220-grit sandpaper, as was the underside of the mount.



Mount is glued with Hysol 0151 and clamped to cure for 24 hours. Then, it's time to start final fitting of the top in preparation to gluing it to the bowl.

The bowl is ready to be glued to the top. All the holes are cut and/or drilled, label has been printed and glued into place.



Here's a close-up of the label. The gold metallic toner really makes this look like gold foil.



Holes are masked from the inside. Time to glue the top to the bowl.



Visqueen is taped to the gluing board, just in case. Top is in place.



A bead of Hysol 0151 is run along the lining.



Top and bowl are joined and excess glue scraped off. I'll wait 24 hours, then pull the body off the board.
