Spam bots are certainly getting more advanced. Great, skynet probably won't bomb us, just clog up our email inbox...

All you need now is some surveillance gear and one of those red night vision cabin lights and you'll be ready for some stake-outs.

Going to take a fair amount of contact adhesive to cover all those panels in carpet. Hopefully you can find some low odour stuff. I remember doing a panel van about 15 years ago......had a headache for a week.

Can I use digital night vision like https://www.atncorp.com/nightvision-day-night-systems (clip-on system) ? I don't have it yet, but can borrow from my cousin who's a hunter. Thanks in advance!

I think you can

I guess seeing this post has popped up again, I should actually pop in an update!

Here's Mission Control in it's final form -

As you can see from the photos, the rear area got a total re-build. The way I built it originally, it just didn't work - with the bed in place, you had no access to the seating areas and, frankly, needing a step ladder to get up was just insane!

As for Mission Control now, it's been sold :( time to move on!

We should keep the bot as a pet and let it name our rockets. Who wants "Digital Nightvision" :lol:

Better watch out, that kind of build looks pretty easy to cock up!
