Here's the rest of the pix...

You can see the tubes that support the sleeping position are not in the way

when the panel is Stowed...

Hey Guys,
I got the Baggage area "Bling" done

It took about 8 hrs to do all of this "engine turning"

Now , If it gets scratched during use , it won't show much...

Looks outstanding Mike. What does it weigh-in at for the extra sheet metal and tubes?

Hi Dave,

I'm not sure how much.... It's .032 Aluminum and 1/2" X .035 chromoly tubes

Weight charts are in the Aircraft Spruce Catalogs...

Since a Baggage area is usually framed and boxed in....

After subtracting weight that would have been used for that...

It's probably a few pounds heavier...

But this is going to be more useful...

It has that "Utility" quality....

If I want ... I can make a Flimsy frame and cover it with fabric

for everyday use....Then switch them for the stronger sleeping frame...

For now , I'll move on...

Gotta Fly...
