Default Baggage compt to Tail cone door

Hello builders !
I recently finish and started flying the -10 in Buenos Aires, Argentina
Noted that many times I had to access the aft compartment to check batteries, fuses, controls, etc and the 50 screws panel is boring and hardworking to open.
Well, the question is : is doable to make a door or two in that section ?
Anyone has do it ?
Imputs and pics will be highly appreciated

There have been modifications to the baggage bulkhead-----a few threads on that. You need to do an advanced search and do not forget to reset the time in the drop down "Find posts from" to "any date" in the search window, lower left area.

Beware the baggage bulkhead is a structural item, this mod is something that must be done with that in mind to make sure the strength is not compromised.

Here is one example.
