Just one more item to note:

If you notice in the close-up picture below, the hinge pivot attached to the cowl on the left is longer than the right. The support rod also has a larger diameter there as well. The rod contacts the extended pivot as the travel stop for the door. So when open, the door does not use the cowl as a stop. In fact, the door or hinge does not contact the cowl at all when open.
