Pan & Tilt, Arduino Style

I've been wanting to play with an Arduino controlled Pan & Tilt Mechanism for quite some time. Today I ordered a kit that will be a prototype for a solar array on a bigger scale. I'll be using this Pan & Tilt Mechanism. The kit includes brackets, two miniature servos and all the nuts and bolts. I'll mount a small solar panel from a garden light on here, and keep you posted as to my progress.

Update: Received kit 8/25/14
Check your hardware package before starting assembly! Mine was missing a small self tapping screw for holding the servo to the wheel. Jameco sending replacement hardware.
Update: Received replacement hardware 8/29/14. Jameco Rocks!
