STRAKES. Door Cut #2

Then I passed the saw through both grooves and used them to guide the saw and cut through the lines manually. The groove on both surfaces makes the cut easy and tends to keep the saw from deviating. I cut the bottom strake shell entirely but stopped cutting short of the ends of the top to keep the part attached to the strake until final installation. The door can be opened during the fitting process and the attached bottom section supports the top shell in full until permanent installation. I initially cut the bottom strake shell at 90° (manual) but felt the strake was somewhat interfering unnecessarily with the access to the cabin.
