A project log for Shelly the Crab

Shelly is a rideable, animatronic hermit crab sculpture.

I finally got a space to work on Shelly again! These are some pics of her as I disassemble her for cleaning/upgrades. Featured in this pic: the heavy duty linear actuator I intend to use to lift the legs off the ground. Her new drive wheels, and also the new 750w drive motors I intend to use.
All the body panels removed for wiping down and de-rusting.
The shell will require a lot of work. Some small welds broke, and some rust has become rather aggressive. I need to re-paint it.
The whole crew :)
