It took two hours to do a thirty minute job.

I accidentally way over trimmed the extended baggage panel ( 7F8-9B ). And by over trim, I mean I read the plans and the the directions...

The plans simply say "trim to fit", but I forgot that the panel was supposed to overlap the Zee Channel ( 7F8-10B ), so I thought the panel was 10mm too long, which made since since the baggage back was off by 10mm.

The remedy the situation I was able to find some extra 0.025 laing around that happened to be 800mm wide. I cut a piece 60mm deep and drilled it onto the front of the panel. Problem solved.

I did have to trim the extended panel in by 5mm on each side.

That will teach me for not triple checking against the HBH videos, plans AND manual.
