Mini-Revy help

So, my mini-revy I had made out of a Winchester 48 hopper just died. The servo I got from a PS2 controller like burnt up or something. I havent decided to pop it open to see what caused it, but, all I know is, I need to reconvert it.

Having just aquired another 12v revy with a home-colored, sickley purple color shell (cracked, hence why I got it, since it was cheap), I ripped the internals out and began modding em onto the hopper.

Now, my home-job I did on the old version, I havd just covered the batteries and motor with pecies of thick plastic-card, then ducted taped the bejesus out of it. However, this being more of nice cicuitry, I cant do that.

So what have you guys used to kind of cover up the guts of your mini-revis? I am not sure what to use here. I am trying to keep it easily accessible, should I need to pop it open and clean out things every now and then. Any clue?

Also, what would you suggest I use for an impellor? The normal revi one doesnt fit, and hacking it doesnt seem reasonable. Also, Id kind of like to save the impellor I got in the broken revi for my nicer, real revi I use on my semi, since the one in that one seems to not want to hold the screw in the middle anymore. So I may swap it.

I wasnt sure if this belongs in the custom section. Feel free to move it if it does belong there.

Im sure I have thousands. lol. I never thought to use those.

Seriously, I have every star wars kit, minus a few of the big ones, some of the origional pirate kits, the medival/robin hood kits, ninja kits, crap loads of technic kits, space kits, origional plain kits, tons. Like an entire 3'x2'x2' tub of legos. lol

Never too old for legos.

Dont suppose I can make the cover out of legos though, eh? lol.

make your impeller out of a pice of plastic tube and weedwacker string.

As for covering the electronics, use neoprene.

Go to Home Depot and cruise the aisles looking for ideas. There usually is something cheap that could be used. Sometimes Walmart too. Check the cooking aisle for something like a butter dish lid? Just keep your mind wide open when you are looking and bring your pieces you have with you so you can makes sure they fit. Good luck.

I ended up duct taping the crap out of it. lol.

Worked pretty good today, except till the part where I was dashing for a bunker and the tape came off and dumped my batteries. Nothing a bit more duct tape didnt fix.

Ill get some pics up or something. Ima work on some kind of shell design for it though, since a paintball almost tore it off.
