39ft sedan engine hatches

Postby ukester » Sun Jul 03, 2016 5:10 pm

installing a new floor in the salon and running into trouble with the engine hatches-really looking for some sort of metal that attaches to the hatch but overlaps kind of like a t-any one have a idea of where I can find something that would work?

Thanks Mark

I used 1/8 x 2 inch aluminum. Easy to drill the zillion holes, then countersink them so the screws are flush. A good hardware store sells it.
