Lightbulb My latest idea

Since I finished the car I learned that opening the hatch all the time was a real pain in the *** (or maybe I'm just lazy)! To add gas to the fuel cell or to trip the circuit breaker when I would charge the battery (isolates the battery from the alternator) was getting to be a real pain. So I made a small access door in the hatch, I can reach in and trip the breaker or stick in the funnel with some hose added to it to gas up, problem solved. It was easy to do other than having to design and make the hinges.

Whenever you're ready Mikey .


Hard to see in the photo, but they're actually countersunk socket head screws. Oh, I did get the idea for the hinges based on our landing gear doors.
