R5's dome rotation upgrade 1.0

I started to unscrew the lower base plate, and then remembered that the skin was pinned & so as much as I didn't want to do more work than I needed to, it meant that it had to be taken off.
Started by cutting the silver tape round the edge, then started to pry off the outer skin.
 


Here you can see the panel pin, that held the skin on.

And here it is removed.
R5-D4

Saturday I picked up from the Post Office, my new 'lazy susan/rockler style' bearing. Wasn't expecting it to have steel bearing in tho.....
