Cockpit Hatch modification, of the Walk Over model

From Peter Roach:

Here is what I did:

Big hatch

I then attached a piece of door gasket material to the bottom of the part I had to cut off to miss the door. This acted as a drip rail for the blunt edge. I also painted the end of the board with epoxy because the plywood was showing. Here is a picture of the hinges and spring shock.

On the small hatch cover you have to cut off the side by the bench seat so it stands up like this:

Leave a 1/4th inch drip rail so that water does not roll under the lid.

On both of the access hatches I used a weather strip from Lowes. It keeps the noise down and does not seem to allow any water into the engine space.
