No worries at all. Hopefully your systematic approach will pay off. I have my fingers crossed for you.

I have a box full of bits from the last occasion I had time to daydream about creating robot nicknacks. One day!
I know the feeling! Not long ago I set up a (currently tiny - line <20 subscribers) YouTube channel as a way to prompt myself to finish projects. Rather than get further off topic, PM me if you want more info / feel like collaborating would help you get through that bits box!
