Thanks! Yes, I do think that is where I errored too. Tomorrow I will play with foam again. Today though, was $8 arc reactor day!
1 bottle of Snapple
1 lid from the can of Krylon Clear Coat, with the center cut out
1 cheap LED tap light
Stacked like this:
Gives this cool look:
Once my chest piece is made, this will be inserted and the bottle trimmed to the right thickess.

The outter edge of the bottle is quite bright too, its just my camera wouldnt focus on it correctly.
