More Reinforcements for Foot Shells

Tonight I worked on filling and reinforcing some of the voids where edges meet to form corners on the outside of the foot shells.

I'm using very small scrap pieces from the A&A foot shells for this work.

I used a toothpick to apply PVC glue into the corner where the piece will go.

And, in it goes.

Similar deal for the center foot shell, only the segments are smaller.

All done.

How well will this work? I don't know.

I know I need to sand them down, and I'm hoping they will both a) hold, and b) actually provide a little structural reinforcement. Because the channel of the drivetrain will fit up against inside of the foot shell, I didn't really have much room to reinforce the insides of these corners.
