Sumpod progress report

Not much progress to show, but on Wednesday I sanded down all the parts - which took about three hours by myself. Before painting on Saturday I also had to get off all the dust before I gave the parts another coat of primer. The larger surfaces are fine, but the ends sucks up primer like there's no tomorrow. So far I've used three 500ML boxes of primer and I'll probably need at least one more before I'm done.

According to the build descriptions at renaissance-engineer the feeder assembly should have more holes than this or am I missing something?

Front
Back/inside. I probably need to drill some holes for the
gear and motor fastings.
edit: I found the answer to my question on the SUMPOD forum: http://www.sumpod.com/forum/post/minor-problem-feeder-parts
