Brief Description:  Modifications to door latch

No images yet, but they will be here. I am installing the flush door latches and doing the 'hidden' latch release. That means the inner handle and latch release mechanism has to be modified. I cut the inner release tube to remove the oval holes (which left me with 1.75", not the 2" the directions said - not a problem as the all-thread will adjust the final length) and removed 3/4" on the tube on the handle weldments. Then I talked to my friendly machinist (Phil Cobbin, who is building an RV-7) to see if he had an 'F' drill and he took on the task of boring and tapping the inner relase tubes for me. That puts me on hold for a couple of days so I can work on the door fit and also some 'honey-dos' that have piled up ... and I'll be sure to add pictures once I get the parts back.
