Prepping Aft Hatch Opening

Started work on the aft hatch and opening today. I’m shooting for a hatch that can be hinged on top. To make this possible I have to square up the top of the hatch opening to accept hinges.
I also trimmed down the existing vertical supports that I cut out for the opening. The door needs to be lightish. The new door will be 2 inches thick instead of 7 inches.
I cut all new lateral supports for the hatch. (The existing supports had 6 inch holes that I drilled in them that would make fairing and strength an issue)
I’ll epoxy the hatch in place to make sure it fits.
