    I've done the same as Steve (DF4). The access holes are enlarged and I'm covering with either light gauge aluminium or fibreglass covers. But I like the idea of using supaglue to hold stuff in place.

    Vinyl decals have been used to cover those areas also. John McB.ís personal Kitfox has clear vinyl covers to retain preflight inspection ability.

    Also, I made my access holes a little larger this time. Made covers out of light aluminum that are painted the same color as the rudder . Curved them to fit the profile of the rudder leading edge and made sure they cleared the back of the tail post with full deflection of the rudder. So much easier to assemble the rudder and much more wrenching room.

    Oh that's a nice idea! I may open mine up with that type of an option!
