Pantograph Bay Doors

I just sent some pictures of my Prototype bay door to Jim Shepherd.
If these make it thru to him, he said he will post them for me.
As you can tell, I am not very computer literate, but I am trying.

Thanks!

Heck, you guys don't need to know computers! Both of you just find ways to make your Eagles better! :) That's time well spent! ;) I make plenty of mistakes on these 'puters for all of us!

Looking forward Sonnie to see the pics! Hope you guys are doing good!

I sized Sonnies photos a bit big, so that you can see quite a bit of detail. Let me know if you have problems viewing them on your screen.

None at this time, I will use a round rubber seal when I redo everything,
sort of like what was on the original bay doors vertical post.

Very nice, Sonnie! I wonder if those would work with my idea of hydraulic controls to open and close them.
