Dan and I also went to RadioShack to shop around for robot parts. I found some perfect switches for the bumper.
After it was soldered and put back together, i drove it around the office a bit.. it's so awesome, haha. Forgot to take a picture and it's somewhat taken apart again.. but i'll put up a few pictures (video?) soon!
Also, final thing.. i promise. Ordered the plastic! Should be here in five days or so. can't wait :)
