| Assembly Part 4 |
Last Modified: 2006-10-03
In this part, you will add the controller and top deck of the robot. This step uses the acrylic deck and fasteners from Bag Two of your kit. You will need a small Phillips head screwdriver.
Remove any remaining paper covering from the acrylic deck by peeling it off. We leave it on so the acrylic doesn't scratch in shipping.

Locate the top of the acrylic deck. The top is the side where the Palm connector is glued. Attach the Pontech SV203 controller to underside of the acrylic deck with the nylon slotted screws going through top of the deck. On the bottom side, add a nylon washer followed by the 1/4" hexagonal nylon spacer. Tighten these up snugly and then place the SV203 on the three threaded posts that protrude from the spacers. Finally, follow with three lockwashers and three hex nuts. Take care when working with the board as the components are fragile.

Next, attach the deck to the frame you built in previous steps. The controller sits inside the frame and the bent-down tabs in the frame hold the deck in place. Use six 1/4" screws from the top of the deck through the acrylic and the tab. Follow with lockwashers and nuts inside the frame to firmly attach the deck. Again, get all six fasteners started loosely before tightening each.
Now the chassis is complete. Next you will make all the necessary electrical connections. This part should have used all the hardware from Bag Two of your kit. Don't be surprised if there are a few extras. We intentionally added them to cover any missed counts on our part or a lost piece on your part.
