Remember when they pulled C3PO apart in "The Empire Strikes Back"? My R2 had a chance to experience that feeling. R2 has a new frame but needs the stuff pulled out of the old one first. I planned to take the center ankle off first then pull the electrical and gas pipes apart....this wouldn't happen. To get to the pipes and get the center ankle out I had to rip R2's old frame apart with my jigsaw. My poor friend became a pile again.
Here's the pile of stuff and the new wood frame ready to be worked on.
