As a question - what are folks using for mounting the electronics?  I've heard that acrylic is the most popular item, but how thick of a sheet is the "norm"?  

I'm actually running well ahead of schedule right now, and I'd like to get the acrylic and battery mounts installed and start working on the skins for the second half of this month, instead of trudging into the feet just yet.

I just used 1/8" styrene. I took a rectangle and cut slits about half way up on each side for the center frame ring to clear and pushed it back against the uprights. ( Dave-E styrene design) it stays in place and is easy to remove. I don't have any pics here but I could try to post one later.
