I'm still trying to figure out some of the details. There are few questions that bug me every time I look at the references
1. Were the contact pins already missing in Norway?

The fist picture looks like there are no pins, second like at least one of them is there ...
2. Is this the same prop?

Quality is bad, but I see 2 buttons, what looks like 4 or 5 wide grips without notches and I see no black bolts (2 should be clearly visible despite the quality), but I think there is aluminium disc that replaces the top part of the bulb contact (note the straight line between the black and the metal inside the contact pin hole).
So if it is the same prop - it must be really early in the conversion "journey", before the bolts were added - but wasn't Dagobah supposed to be filmed last?
There's also this reference from the cave duel:

looks like the same grips, but the small "black hole" that supposedly is also some type of screw/bolt is visible.
That leads to the next couple of questions
3. Is this supposed to be a screw that holds the aluminium disc in place? It is drilled little too low, but maybe still goes completely into the disc instead of between the disc and the lower part of the bulb contact like it happened on my build ...
4. Where this fits into the timeline?

The grips look like those on DV6, suggesting it was done at the end of the fiming and remained like this ... But It is relatively good quality picture, the big bolt is clearly visible but no trace of the small "black hole" that should be right between the pin port and the back button. Also the other big bolts are not clearly visible, but I think they are there and should we assume all 6 of them were done at the same time? Or is it possible fist they only had 2 on the sides like some of the other stunts?
So is it just the picture quality, or this is taken after the big bolts were added, but before the small ones? There's plenty of references of the small holes in the Bespin duel scenes, so if they were filmed before Dagobah it should be there, but I just don't see it...
5. Another one that I'm not sure how it fits with the rest of the references:

So - no bunny ears - does it mean it was taken after every other reference? Maybe they were removed temporarily, but it's more likely once they fell off, they were gone for good... Grips look like notched t-tracks, maybe there's one missing ?
I hope someone will be able to clear my confusion at least about some of these questions.
