Hi Bob,Hi Marty, presumably you are having to set a few countersink rivets. If so, what are you using to cut the countersinks? Thanks.
Thanks Mike, I will go have a look at your Nynja post.Hi Marty
As you have the lower latch sorted; in my Nynja post #58 you will see the aft door latch I have made; very simple and hugely effective and has a spring to positive lock and you could do similar for the forward latch and connect these to the lower latch to allow opening.
Also for info Flylight in UK sell a door latch its spring loaded (image) and pull via s/s cable to pull for opening, these are very compact and positive locking. I could see them or something similar that you fabricate working. Other wise a s/s rod in 3/16 mm rod and some guides would work. (Skyfox did this method)
I recon you could fab up similar to the UK ones.
Its got to be fun deciding on safe, fit for purpose latches.? (That's what I told myself at that same stage.)
Your build is looking great. You should be at the cricket BBL tonight ?? We have the WBBL in Mackay tomorrow night and Sunday arvo.
