Glued in Top Utility Arm MDF Pivot Point Holder

Time to glue down the MDF holders for the top arm. Same procedure as for the bottom arm.

First apply the glue.

Then affix the holders to the adjoining ribs.

Finish it up by using the ancient quarter trick to prop up the arms.

I'll let this dry overnight. I still have a little work to do,including cutting and drilling the aluminum tabs that lock the pivot points in place, drilling and gluing in the segment of rod for the servos to pull the arms open and closed, and probably some minor filing where the arms still sometimes rub up against the skins as they swing open and closed.
