Default Check clearance

Be sure to check your clearance on the left side before using hinges. Mine was actually in contact with Cyl #2 and I had to re-do it. All is well now and I have about 1/4" of clearance there,but it was a ton of extra work. I used the Dan Horton method and laid up the joggle instead of using hinges or the camloc mounting strip. I used nutplates on the horizontal interface to get the clearance. Hing eyes will eat about 1/16th. Do a search and you'll see my thread with pics, it was pretty recent, month or two ago.
