Now you will need to drill all the holes in the plastic project box, one for the main light one for the beacon, Two for the solar panels wires , the two for the switches as you can see in the picture below and finally file the slot for the USB port.

Wire the lights to the four AA battery box and the beacon to the momentary and the flashlight to the on/off switch. Then wire the six volt NIMH battery pack to the USB port then to the six volt solar panel. As you can see in the picture I put a recharging port so you don't have to rely on the sun to keep the battery charged.
