    Default Glueing On Inspection Rings After The Fact

    Had to add some inspection rings in a covered wing to access some stuff. Glued the ring on the outside with Stewart's glue. After it dried I cut the hole out and then glued another ring on the inside but not good way to clamp everything.

    So I figured out a better way. Adapt and overcome.

    I know, I bought a pile years ago that is slowly dwindling as I modify them for different jobs!
