The hatch on my mkII was glassed in with just an inspection hatch put in the top. I’d like to re-instate the hatch to allow for gear carrying, plus the old hatch is leaking on the edges. Has anyone else done this. Was it a big job? Could a relative idiot do it?
Mine is exactly the same – no rear hatch, just an inspection hatch. The inspection hatch flange leaked but was easy to seal with some sikaflex.
However – I’d like to have the extra stowage, so I’m very interested to see if anyone has done the job of cutting out the full hatchway and fitting a real hatch. I suspect there is some fiberglass moulding round the edge that is missing on ours?
