Step 4: COVERING THE CASING WITH VINYL

1. Use fine sandpaper to smoothen out all the outer surfaces of the 3D printed pieces so that the vinyl sticker sticks easily.

2. Use a wet cloth to get rid of all the fine particles which might remain on the surfaces after sanding.

3. After the surface dries, apply the vinyl sticker on the surface. Make sure there are no trapped air bubbles.

4. Use scissors to trim off the excess sticker around the edges.

5. Now apply sticker around the sides of the casing and trim the excess.

6. Use a boxcutter or any other razors to cut out the holes for the OLED display, charging port, the encoder wheel, and the sharp IR sensor.

WARNING: BE VERY CAREFUL WITH SHARP BLADES AND TOOLS
