The first part to making the flashlight was modifying the nuts and the screw. For the nut with the switch, I drilled out a hole that would be big enough for the switch and the cap. For the battery compartment I also had to drill out the nuts, because even though the cells would have fit inside, I couldn't fit in the insulation.
