Shoulder Shims

I traced the shoulder horseshoes onto 1/8" styrene. These will be the shoulder shims. The shims will have to be smaller than the shoulders/legs and the horseshoes all around the perimeter by 1/8", and will be sandwiched between the shoulders/legs and the horseshoes to give the outer legs a bulkier look.

Outer Leg Painting/Sanding

I hung up R2-NU's outer legs on some string (running it through the shoulder holes) between some stakes in the yard about a week ago. I sprayed the legs several times (I lost count of how many) to give them an even look. Last night I wet sanded the legs with a piece of 220 grit sand paper to even out the surface and remove a few paint drips.
Hopefully, sooner than later, I will be able to put the final coats of paint on R2's legs.
