Watch those panels! 0.82" have gone missing
I found with annoyance today that the .dxf CAD drawing of the RV-7/9 tipper panel supplied by Vans appears incorrect. The horizontal dimensions are correct, but the vertical down the centerline is about 0.82" higher in the CAD drawing vs my chunk of cold, aluminum.
The .dxf measures 11.456 (291mm for our metric using friends), but the physical panel measures only 10.63" (270mm). That's a big difference! ... and hoses my current layout.
I'll check with the mother ship and report back. How about those folks out there who cut these panels for living? Surely this discrepancy has come up?
N430WB (reserved) RV-7 #74152, tip-up. Engine is in the house!
