Engine room roof panel

The engine room removable roof panel has been refitted (finally) with rubber sealing  gasket around the edge. The allen head crews used were each "copper slipped" before insertion as hopefully they will not need to be removed for many years to come.. The hexagonal recesses will be filled with epoxy during painting so they will resemble rivets


  1. If you ever have to open that panel again, how will you get the epoxy out of the allen heads ?

    1. It will be a soft epoxy body filler. I forsee going in with a clearance drill then cleaning out the hole with a sharp point and or hammering in a hex key.
