Resumed Work on Ankle Brackets

This afternoon I was able to spend a little time returning to work on the PVC ankle brackets (one of them, at least).

First, I used a push pin to score the outline that I need to cut to allow the leg and booster cover to pass through.

Next, I used the Dremel with the cutoff wheel attachment to rough-cut the section goes around the leg. (I'll cut the area for the booster cover later, when I have more time.)

I used a course file and a fine file to clean up the edges as much as possible.

A test fit indicates things are close, but I may need to go back and file off a little more material, the bracket is not sitting quite far back enough. It's pretty close, though.
