Attached Skin Panels

I used silicone to affix panels for the skins that will be attached permanently, and masking tape for those panels that I may want to be able to open and close on a hinge at some future date. The panels with silicone are held in with blue tape while the silicone cures overnight, and then the blue tape will come off and the legs will go back on.

Silicone was applied to the inner skin's cutout edges, then the panel was attached and taped in place. After a few hours, I went over the inside of the skins to apply silicone on the back. Those panels that are held in with masking tape are only taped in from the inside.
