Brief Description:  Door locking rods

I installed the locking rods in the doors to get ready for the pin receivers in the fuselage.
Well if I had given the pins in the doors more thought they would had lined up better. Now that I have done the job I would have done it differently. The video tells you to line up with your eye and the painted line on the door so off I go. The pre drilled holes were off course a lot and I followed them to only have the rods bend more to line up. The bottom left rod guide is so bad that tonight I could not make it fit into the fuselage for the receiver. I will have to remove the pin guide from the door and reinstall it to line up better. This will be fun as I will have to drill down the side of the pin guide to move it over or out and glue back in.

Next time I build a Velocity I will push a rod true the pre drilled hole just to see were it goes and adjust my drilling direction to get to its location.
