I've been working on a pattern , trying to cover the most with one piece.
I might use some expensive 90 degree Mahogany ply I bought too much of
$50 bucks a sheet , I had two extra...

Unless I can think of something lighter and just as good.

Sometimes you just have to take the leap
and build your wings on the way down...

Fine tuning the holes , I put aluminum Tape on the Patterns tubing Holes..
After the cover was put in place and taken out... The aluminum tape gave me closer details.

I was thinking of a way to secure the cover.
It locks into place around the tubing , So just a little more is needed.
.
I used an existing nutsert... So the same screw is used.

The cover can be "Flexed" and out of the tab...Or reverse
So...Nothing to unbolt...

Later , I will add two screws through the "Finger Nuts" I made
