Fitting the Cowling Pt.4
Skybolt receptacles riveted to the firewall plates.
I'm fitting the horizontal split hinge in between the firewall plates. They will butt up against the two rivets on the firewall, as shown. You may also notice that I'm using a piece of -4 (top)and -5(bottom) hinge mated together here. This allows me to push the hinge up high enough to eliminate the saw tooth gap, at the split line, as seen on most RVs. Sam James provided this tip.
