Patches long door

Finally getting back to working on R2-CM. I got to mounting one of the long door servos permanently on the droid. It is a lot easier to do with the body upside down and the legs off.
Plus it is fun to spin the dome motor and watch the body spin around LOL.

Here is the set up in the closed position
Here is the open position.
Putting on the legs and flipping Patches right side up, you can see there is plenty of clearance for the shoulder flashing later. The bottom of the door has a slight gap when closing so I may need to put a light spring on the bottom hinge.
