Why hasn't this been done? Who cares! I'm doing it now! I'm about 50% complete on this project, having sourced wiring and connectors, all I have left to do is crimp them up and solder them in to the feet. I've started this thread to gauge interest in the possibility of selling these kits as a complete, all in one solution for the (in)famous wiring problem for these guys. Drop a line to let me know that there are still those out there who love these robots and would like to get theirs going without all the hassle.
