Full rotation quadruped build continued

The next step in (re-)building the quadruped with a full rotation leg was getting all the motors ready.  I had to first install reinforcing rings on 6 of the motors:

My epoxying station
dsc_0278
4x gearboxes with reinforcing rings installed

Then, I needed to lengthen the power leads on 3 of the motors to serve as the lower leg joint.

Then I had to assemble all the new legs:

dsc_0557
Upper leg joints mounted
dsc_0558
Lower leg joints mounted
dsc_0563
All three remaining legs built

I mounted them all to the chassis:

All the legs!

And then re-installed the battery stud and “resting” feet:

Next up, will be actually powering them and getting it to walk!
