A large access panel added on top inboard aft skin of both wings. Makes connections a lot easier and well illuminated since light naturally comes from above. Much easier working "from above" than below. And I wanted to avoid a stiff neck from looking up all the time! Also thinking of making another removable panel that is forward to make easy access from above to service those VW fuel senders if ever necessary.

Exactly what I did, sir and for the same reasons.  Looks just like mine.
