Great timing, I was about to start the glueing process on my hatch.
I read through the the book and there was no indication that the authors stitched the hatch in place. However, I plan on stitching the corners in place (two on each side). When I was lining this up I had to drill holes in both the hatch and through the trailer -> the holes did not align well.
Just my 2 cents, and I’m off to do it. I will let you know how it goes once it is cured (will be this weekend).
Hi – as a quick follow up. I drilled the holes but I did not end up stitching it in place. I just placed weights on top. This way it the glue would be under the Ender before placing, and it covered the holes (wires would not be removable so I skipped it.
I also have the holes in place to stitch the top hatch and plan to use them since the cut out is almost exactly as big as the hatch itself making it almost impossible to line up with the 1/4 of an inch of overlap all around! I wish I had dry fitted it to the hole before I filleted it and glassed the inside:( They make it look like you have plenty of play in the book!!
