It’s been two months (to the day), but progress is once again being made!
From some of our other posts, you may have gathered that we’ve been a little busy lately… with getting things in place for our future co-pilot… to starting a new company (please check out SkySwapper.com!), and I have to admit, fiberglass is new to me, and a little intimidating.
But now I’m going to get back into the swing of things, and do my level best to get SOMETHING done at least a few times a week, and today’s contribution was to cut out the door openings in the cabin top.
The openings in the cabin top for the doors comes from Vans with scribe lines in the fiberglass for where to cut back to. I’m planning on using a set of door seals from McMaster Carr that work a little differently than the stock setup, and as a result, I’ll need to cut the opening a little different. However, since I don’t have seals (or even doors) to reference, I’m cutting the opening out to the stock specs for now. Then when I’m starting to fit the door, I can make the final cuts.
The cabin top is quite thick in certain areas I cut thru, but I was able to make pretty quick work of it with a pneumatic cut-off wheel and a belt sander.
