Utility arm clearance

As all builders know the current utility arms do not clear the skins. Filing away at the skin changes the shape of the opening and thus the visual design - a cardinal sin in my eyes! It might be the easiest way, but dont do it!! Instead get an electric file and make an extra angle on the inner part if the arm. That way it retains the shape/look when closed.


  1. It's such a bummer to me that we have to do this at all, especially when he said that they had been modified to include this angle. Mine we anodized blue.. and now will have to be filed away removing the anodize.... which will be painted over anyway. Still.. you know what I mean. -michael

  2. Yeah I know, but then again you probably want to paint them anyway?
