So I have kinda weird question.

 

I am modding my old stampede. new motor and all that good stuff. (maybe even a brass breech) but anyway, I didn't keep my nerf guns in very good condition. The stampede was filled with dirt and other crap. I separated the halves and completely cleaned the half with the safety. However I've run into a problem. Two of the screws holding the gear block in are very stripped, I assume from my poor treatment. And the gear block is directly in the way of the wires attached to the battery pack. So I can't desolder all the wires. However I still need to wash out all the crap, as well as paint the inside. I'd cover the wires with tape for the paint, but if the wires (obviously not powered) themselves get damaged if they become wet. I'd keep the switches in a plastic bag so those don't get wet. But will the wires themselves get damaged by a soak in water. And I don't want to drill out the screws as the holes will weaken the gears and with an upped motor and an 8kg spring it might break.

A slip of rubber band and a *slighly* smaller sized screw driver should work.

If they're too far gone for this simple trick to work you'll need to drill them out.

If you drill them out slowly you shouldnt damage any of the other parts.

Push comes to shove Stampedes are $10 tops, cheaper if you can find one at a thrift store.
