I edited all my year old posts to fix the Photobucket fiasco and have updated posts to add full size detail photos. 

The Glue Pen was $1.99 US at a local Hobby Lobby craft store in Phoenix.  Very handy for a travel kit.

Video of tread folding and gluing.

Part was previously scored while still on full sheet, I'm just re-scoring to improve folding.

Finished first tread 38 inches long.







Tread had to be fed into position due to it being trapped by return rollers and tread guards.  All of my wheels, front tensioner and rear sprocket are not glued.  They have been reinforced enough to not require any glue.  This permitted removing a wheel to improve access to glue the tread.  Gluing was a non-event, I was really concerned about how to glue the links together.  I just smeared some glue on and slid the parts into alignment and gently burnished with a toothpick as the glue set.













Front idler was rotated to provide tread tension and is not glued.  Friction alone is holding it.  I might fit a small screw thread with nut to tension front idler.

Thank you for the positive comments.  The treads are actually too long, the front idler should be rotated back to allow the upper forward segment of tread to be almost level with the upper track roller.  I had to rotate it forward to get proper tension.  I haven't had time but I need to remove a few links.  Probably back to the scale number since there are a few extra links.
