Bottom Access Hatch

Because my elevator control horn sticks down about an inch further than the plans specify,
I needed to ensure that the fabric covering doesn't interfere with it when it's shrunk tight.
Since there needs to be an access hatch there anyway, I decided to make it out of
1/8 inch plywood. This also requred me to build up the bottom stringers so that
they are flush with the new access hatch.

Total Time: 3.5 hrs.
