Default I Did Mine a Little Differenter

The openings in the fuselage on mine were such that I couldn't move the rod far enough to get the bottom bolt out, the rod hit the fuselage opening. I ended up pulling the bolt at the top of the rod instead. A little harder because you have to open up the side panel on the fuselage interior. Also, I didn't want to work with the flap just hanging so I took them all the way off so I could work at the bench. That made the process much easier. It also allowed me to clean everything up since they had been on for about 17 years.
