Two boards were populated with components and terminals. Some of the pads were highly eroded by the etching process and required extra work to solder to them. The blue screw terminals required an odd number of terminals on each side but they were purchased as two-screw pieces so some had to be cut in half which, invariably, destroyed the second half.

 Once the boards were assembled a test fit was performed to make sure a populated board could fit inside a PVC pipe. Fortunately, there was no resistance or problems when putting the board into the pipe. There isn't a method of securing the board in place inside the pipe but a model may be designed for holding it or it may simply be held with a bolt from the outside.
