After your Hood is complete and you've sanded the smooth flat areas, It's time to clean, tape and prime the container.
Wash the container very well and let it dry.
Tape the very bottom of the container at the area where the Black and Yellow
stripes will be located. You don't want any primer in this area.
The best way to describe where the stripes are located is to look at the very 1st post and you will see the stripes.
I used a gray primer because I didn't want the yellow to dull down.
This is what your droid should look like now:

Ok, Now that the base for the Scrubber Droid is primed, Remove the tape from the lower 4 corners and add tape lines to create the caution strips at each corner. Sorry I don't have a picture of the spacing of the tape to create the lines.
Here are some pictures of what the Droid should look like after you paint.
I used a Rustoleum bright yellow. But any bright yellow paint will be fine.

You can start adding and adjusting the goodies for you Scrubby now.
The hose on the front of the droid, You can get at Home Depot and it looks like a Shop Vacuum hose but it's much weaker and you can find it in the pluming department.
Cut 2 links of hose about 2 to 2-1/2 feet long.



Paint them with Silver spray paint and then insert them into the holes in the front body and the other end into the holes on the hood.
They don't have to stick in far, But you will have to adjust them to get the proper look. After they look correct, Cut off the excess but leave enough to glue them in place using Goop brand glue.

You can now add the chrome tape to the lower long panels, Top 4 corners,
Across the bands on the top hood and around the bottom of your red lights.
Add the side buttons, front Eye with Pc Board insert and the four checkers in each corner.
Your Droid should look like this now.





The red checkers in each corner will be painted silver, But I have to add some more parts on top of them first.

That's about as far as I can take you on the Scrubber Droid.

I will add more to this tutorial.

Just for clarification the Rubbermaid Action Packer Storage Container is the 8gallon size correct?
