Inspection hatch detail

Post by silverbullet »

Should there be a little bit of stainless J or U section stuck to the panel about here, to stop the spring clip on the inspection hatch scraping the paint off?
Pretty sure that one of the SA built vans used to have one :?

Don't know if you've noticed but it looks like you're missing your engine too
