Brief Description: Trimming Left Door and second pass at Right Door
45-05, Steps 10 & 11
Trim the window openings in the C-1002-L Door such that a 3/4 inch wide flange remains.
Trim the outside perimeter of the C-1002-L Door to within 1/8 inch of the molded-in scribe line except leave a small lab-out at the front and rear indexing holes.
Cleco the doors back onto the fuselage. Mark any areas of the door outside perimeter which require further trimming in order to fit to the fuselage. Small amounts of material are best removed with 80 to 100 grit sandpaper on a long (approximately 12 inches) sanding block.
This time I cut right on the trim line. There is still a little more to be trimmed off. The right door ended up to be centered almost perfectly. I can't say the same for the left. I'll need to move the holes for the clecos so that the door is centered before trimming again.
I performed a second trimming on the right door to take off the 1/8 inch outside the trim line. One more pass at each door should have the job done.
