The painted parts were separated to dry paint between parts which was not exposed to air. The finish was very smooth, even and reflective.

Painted parts

A yellow wire was added to the vest unit going to the tagger so signals could be passed back to the vest controller. This wire was added to the I/O list of each controller.

The program from 2011 was opened and reviewed. The commenting from three years ago was thorough. A draft of the vest program was started from the 2011 program.

I/O list of vest program draft

To do:
  • Create vest mount for controller, battery, and terminal strip
