11/04/06- 3P0 has his first event! we travelled to Santa Monica's 3rd Street Promenade to display C3P0 along with Michael Senna's R2-D2 for Cinemax, as they were promoting the HD premiere of all the Star Wars films. My son Kory braved the suit, as I still do not fit very well into the torso. Very fun event!

10/29/06- Parts have returned! Great thanks to Vacmet for a fantastic job! I know others have had problems metalizing, but if you put in the extra time to sand and primer the parts, they come out very well. Hopefully I can get some pics up right away!

10/18/06 - Hand delivered the parts to Vacmet for metalizing!

10/17/06 - Final sanding using steel wool...almost done.

10/16/06 - Glued detail pieces on arms and legs.
