Fashioning a new handle for the drill trigger from wood Putting the wood handle into the nerf frame and extending the wiring.
I added a wooden brace to the interior of the gun so that it would not warp with the weight of the drill.
Beginning to fasten the drill onto the body. I used sintra bracing, since it was what I had available and it was flexible enough to torque the drill into the right position.Testing the PVC and cardboard drill enclosure.
Fastened the Sintra cowl over the main body of the gun.
