JUST AN FYI WHILE DOING THE FINAL ASSEMBLY AFTER PAINT WE HAD A FEW PROBLEMS WITH ELECTICAL AND FUEL LINE CONNECTIONS REQUIRING REMOVAL OF MY LEFT WING TWICE, NOT FUN. TO SAVE ON MY HERNIA I ELECTED TO INSTALL INSPECTION PLATES BETWEEN THE BUTT AND INSIDE FUEL BAY RIBS AND THEY WORK GREAT. WHILE WE HAD THE TOOLS OUT WE DECIDED AN INSPECTION PLATE FOR THE STROBE POWER SUPPLY WOULD BE A GREAT ADDITION AS WELL.
Thanks for the tip, I will add the inspection plates to mine soon as I can see I am going to probably have the same sort of problem, I may also add an inspection plate into the wing tip to store cleaning rags etc, keeps the smell away from the cockpit,
