[panic mode on]
i got a call yesterday. it was a guy from michael's shipping company telling me they are going to pick the FF up on monday, which means: I HAVE TO WRAP THAT BABY UP!!!
alright, tomorrow morning i went shopping and brought home a lot of stuff: 1 pallet, 1 huge roll of foil, 2 tension belts, 4 boards of styrofoam and a lot of huge boxes which i got from around 5 to 6 shops i went to to ask for used paperboard.
then i was off to patrik's storage where we packed the machine up to the best of our possibilities. it was DAMN COLD
in there, which made it difficult and exhausting to work. in fact, it was so cold that the adhesive tape always "broke off" after only a couple of centimeters - it must have been frozen!
i told patrik "alright, that's the feeling you have when your fingers die off!"
it took us a while, but we're more than happy with the result!
i'm calling the following series of pictures "COLD MEN AT WORK"
christo would be proud of us!
and finally, the tension belts. we had to drill holes in the pallet because they weren't long enough to go all the way around!
this should hold the game in place!
[panic mode off] monday can come
