Mini RC Car - Part 2

...continuing the Mini RC Car build.

To attach the steering servo, I drilled holes in the frame and bolted the two together.

I then hot-glued the front frame to the rear half, making sure I had enough ground clearance and all 4 tires on the ground.

The next step was creating a board that would support the Arduino chip, a socket for the bluetooth breakout board, the 3.3v voltage regulator and a socket for the servo connector.  Here's the prototype:

After a bit of soldering, here what I have so far:

Now that I have all the main components, I'll do the final assembly and start programming the on-board Arduino code and the Android controller app.
