    And for reference, this is the lid BEFORE the fix so you know what I was dealing with:

    I just wanted to jump back in here and save anyone who planned to follow bad my two-string solution to the galley hatch deformation.  The second string (upper one near the spring pistons) does NOT fit when the galley module is installed.  The lower one is just fine and fixes about 70% of the problem, but not 100%… So I’ll probably have to add side-latches at some point to get a really good seal.  Oh well.

    I added side-latches — and haven’t regretted them at all. In fact, I’ve grown to love knowing the hatch won’t open by itself while being towed. Sure it’s overkill, but I think they’re a good move.
