Looks awesome! A+ Dad-ing!

Some grey paint and a couple of stencils or yellow/black hazard tape would decorate that arena up nicely :)

Re: Cleaning gear motors

Im using an ultrasonic cleaner to remove grease dust and .. shavings of brass, where i shaved the motor down, from the gears :P You can pick a small low power one for £30, good for jewelry, watches or DLP 3D prints :D https://www.ebay.co.uk/p/1-3l-Ultrasonic-Cleaner-Timer-Tank-Heated-Bath-Jewellery-...
