I made this after losing a door inflight with only 4.5. Hours. Works great and keeps the door really tight.

nice job.  would you please post a close shot of that latch.

Dick, is that extra latch openable from outside the aircraft?  In an emergency situation, rescue personnel need to be able to access a disabled pilot (without having to smash windows).

What is the weather strip called or sku # or someway to identify what to buy

Looks great.  Is that a stainless strip on the cabin frame? How is it attached?
