After another long weekend the doors are painted and installed.
I read a statement here on the forum that describes me too well, "its not healthy when you are sitting in church planning your next move". That's why I couldn't build from scratch, once I get stated on something I get tunnel vision until its complete. The doors turned out to be a lot more work than expected. They required a lot of filler to get them ready for paint. Once painted and reinstalled it didn't take long to figure out the new installed door seal wasn't sealing as well as the original vans style. I went with the seal installed around the door jam. I had to remove the pin guides and move them up about 1/8" to get the door to pull in and down as they should have to begin with. To cover up imperfections around the glass I used black silicone, it didn't go well either, It took me two tries to get the silicone bead correct. I learned the hard way, that you remove the tape as soon as the silicone is installed. I like how the cabin has come out, I don't think I will add anything in the ceiling unless I can find something that just covers the door hinge nuts. The only thing left is the rear headliner.
Before





A commit about the Plane around cam locks, I'm not sure what others have done but I left the center cam extended as far out on the shaft as possible. Then the door is completely closed the cam has approximately 1/8" gap between the block. The cam starts the pulling of the door and the pins make the final closure.

I was at Tim's hanger on Saturday while the doors were still off. The pictures don't do it justice ... it's looks better than pictures.

I have the Chevy S-10 overhead console which laps over and fits the ceiling contour well with the Aerosport rear panels. $35 on eBay and I get 2 point lights, a rear overhead light, and an OAT and compass direction indicator for passengers. Looks nice.

What adhesive did you use for the fabric to fiberglass on the headliner? In humid Oregon winter weather I have had issue with it releasing.

I used Permatex Headliner adhesive. It's been on for about a year now, but admittedly, my RV-10 was a hangar queen unitl last month when I started Phase I.

Doug do you have a picture you could post of your overhead?
The adhesive in mine is not holding either, I'm removing the headliner and installing Aerosport panels.

I cut it out of the Flightline front panel that I removed from the plane.

Tim/Doug,

What adhesive did you use? Did you apply it to both the headliner and the headliner cloth? Did you use multiple coats per Geoff's instructions?

Or are you referring to keeping the headliner fiberglass attached to the cabin cover? If so, the cabin cover needs to be relatively smooth and sealed, otherwise the adhesive of the Velcro will dry out. I used Velcro brand industrial strength Velcro. It's held just fine.

Bob
