The Droid Modification Team was a group of 2-1B surgical droids that specialized in repairing droids and replacing their parts. The team was affiliated with the New Republic and, in 5 ABY, was tasked with disguising the droids R2-D2 and C-3PO in preparation for an undercover mission to the planet Kessel.
The Droid Modification Team disguised R2-D2 first while C-3PO waited with the Jedi Luke Skywalker in the Droid Repair Shop on the moon Yavin 4. Skywalker signaled the team with an inter-office communications device after some protestations from C-3PO, and the droids brought in R2-D2, whom they had modified to resemble a dark green Kessel mining droid. C-3PO then reluctantly left with the Droid Modification Team and was modified within an hour, after which he returned to the Droid Repair Shop.
