Trace or draw the part on the plate make sure you draw where the hinges are

Step 4: Cut Out

Cut out the part be carful don't cut where the hinges go

Step 5: Make Hinges

To make the hinges just run it over with a pincle a couple of times to push in the styrofoam but don't go all the way through and then test it

Step 6: Add Control Horn and Wheel

Mark where the control horns go and the wheel and install just like you usually do
