The first thing I’ll tackle is the lower flip-out door. The door will need holes drilled for the hinges, the magnet for the reed switch installed, as well as the ID LED installed, and a styrene panel fitted to cover the LED installation. I began by dry-fitting the hinges in the predesignated recessed areas. Some minor amounts of resin had to be removed for the hinges to sit flush.
After the hinges fit properly, a 5/32″ drill bit was used to drill the holes for the screws that will secure the hinges.
Since the hinges will later be painted, puttied over, and soldered to, I sanded them both with 220 grit sandpaper to insure the putty, paint and solder will adhere properly.
