Nose landing gear doors

NLG door hinge tabs (8) were cut out of a thin fiberglass layup.  These were ground to fit the contour of the fuselage when bolted to the door hinges, and then fixed in place using 5-minute epoxy.  Once the epoxy set, excess was ground off and a 2-ply BID layup was placed around the hinge tabs.  The NLG door part was removed from the fuselage and cut into two halves.
