We're now going to re-pot the the endcaps. To do this, we're going to follow along with the OpenROV 2.6 build guide.

If you've been using the v2.5 or v2.4 OpenROV, you've hopefully got some of the 90-Minute Epoxy left. If not, we've done extensive testing and found that we can safely use 2-ton epoxy from the hardware store. The brand we like is Devcon, 2-ton epoxy "flowmix". The "flowmix" is important because it gives you a mixing tube applicator.

5-minute epoxy is not apropraite, as it hardens before it can penetrate between all the wires and cables.

Either way, the next several steps show a new ROV in progress, but the technique is the same for us.
