Re: CH17 hatch rims
Posted by Ken Leffert on Oct 7, 2004
Just looking at my 17lt that was built from a kit, believe mine are 4mm. There's also a set of stiffeners (4mm) that are epoxied under the deck, the hatch rim on the deck seems to be more for a good seal with the foam that's on the bottom of the hatches, the structural part of the hatch opening comes more from the stiffeners on the inside. All this is ofcourse assuming that you're doing the non-flush mounted hatches....I dunno anything about the flush-mounts......
