Radar Eye Mounting

I drilled the radar eye holes I marked last night. Once the holes were drilled, I duct taped the radar eye in position. I drilled from the inside of the dome through the newly created dome holes to mark the hole locations on the back of the radar eye.

Once the holes were marked, I needed to make the holes deeper to hold the mounting screws. I added tape to my drill bit to act as a depth gage so I didn't drill to far into my radar eye.

I used some linesman pliers to snip the heads off four 6-32 x 1-1/4 bolts. I then used Tech-Bond to glue the bolts into the holes on the back of the radar eye.

Once the glued dried, I mounted the radar eye by putting the bots on the back of the radar eye through the holes of the dome and holding them in place with washers and nuts.
