Alright guys so instead of posting a thread everytime I make some progress and flooding the forums, I’m just going to add my progress pictures to the comments of this thread! I’m pretty far along! I was told people like seeing the process and luckily I’ve been documenting the whole thing!

You can drop it down to 5% for future prints, usually that's all that is needed for infill. If you're worried about strength, infill actually doesn't contribute as much as outer layers.
Yeah I’ve changed my layer walls from the standard 2 to 4-6 depending on the piece, that way I can print the infill down even lower, I appreciate the pointers man
