7.1 Nose Gear Door Installation

This entry is part 18 of 39 in the series 07 - Landing Gear

Once the door hinge tabs had set up, I cut the nose gear door in half. A rather difficult task considering that I was doing it in a somewhat upside down position. But once they were in half, they can be removed and then reinforcement layups are put over the hinge arms and over the hinge tabs to the fuselage.

This the inside of the nose area with the doors removed and the layups on the outside of the hinge tabs.

Closeup of the rear tabs.  I have to drill through the layups that cover the holes in the tabs.
