Funnel's can make great bases for thrusters.

I like that set-up man.

Shower head nozzles, the round ones that mount straight to the wall, are what was used for Jango and Boba's.

Remember, one mans trash is another mans treasure  ;)  I've found 90% of my kit on the curb during trash days and now with Christmas being over I have enough to make a backpack for two of my kids and myself.  Keep up the good work, your Sentra looks like it'll great!

Very cool. My humble opinion would be to fill in the pringle cans and the lava lamp tube with expanding foam to help bulk it up and make it more solid.
