Doors and Windows

Built door latch bushings from parts.  Used hinge guide tool to register hinges in the right location on the doors.  Some grinding of door flat was necessary to fit hinges.  Drilled door, then drilled and tapped hinges, securing hinge to door.

Outer edge of windshield was ground down about 1/16″ in mating area to make its surface flush with outer fuselage skin.  Windshield mounted in upper fuselage and glued into place with alphapoxy and micro.  Clamped by inserting wooden wedges into foam.
