Shielding Orion V2 electronics.

After installing Orion V2s from Umnitza, I was quite worried about having the 2 white boxes with the electronics exposed to the elements. There's literally nothing shielding these from water...the smallest amount would ruin the circuitry. To solve this, I got a 3x2x1 project box from Radio Shack and mounted the boxes inside. The project box needs a couple of modifications with a Dremel for the wires and lid, but the electronics fit inside perfectly.

There is room to slide the project box in between the support brace and the top of the headlight. Should hold up much better to the elements now!
