Brief Description:  Avionics Access Door-1

Too cold to prime the cockpit interior this weekend—high today was 24 with 3 inches of snow. So, I started on an avionics access door. Lots of builders have modified the bulkhead between the instrument panel and the firewall. I followed Buck Wyndham’s site (thanks Buck!) for this mod. I cut a piece of .040 sheet for the door and then cut a piece of P-3 hinge. Also cut a piece of .040 .5” wide so that the hinge will fit flat on the back of the bulkhead. Cutting a ½” wide strip from .040 was real fun-not! The strip curled up and became rather wavy. I straightened it out and edge finished on the scotchbrite wheel. Still has some waves, but I think it will straighten out when it is all riveted together. Next up is to make the doubler for the opposite side of the door.
