Size of the plastic plate

The first thing you should decide on is the size of the plastic plate to add to the robot. The material is just plastic. Find it in you local tools shop.

Cut the whole in the plastic

Take the 160 mm flat channel and add it to the middle of the plate. Take the screwdriver. You first it in the middle and you start to rotate and push marking the whole on which to add the screws. 

Fix/mount the plastic plate to the axle

Use the nuts and the screws. We fix the axle between the flat channel and the plastic plate. There is some friction that would keep the plastic plate fixed.
