In this section, we're going to attach longer leads to each of the three motors and waterproof their solder junctions with special adhesive-lined shrink tubing. It will be helpful to have the tools and materials shown in the photograph.

To start out, we'll need to remove the motor bells. In order to do this, we'll have to remove the c-clips that retain them by spreading the c-clips open and off with the outside edges fine-tipped needle nose pliers.

The c-clips sometimes pop of with a lot of speed, so it's a good idea to wear saftey glasses to protect your eyes!

If you don't have any fine-tipped needle nose pliers laying around, a flat-head screwdriver can also be used, but this is a bit more tricky.

After removing the C-Clips, they can be disguarded . You won't need them any more, so don't worry if they break!
