Pointless claim to fame, I've done the fire alarm system and rewired the lights in that Hanger...

Worked at the base as a civvy for 4 years, always interesting to see what projects were lying around in there!

you could have added more lights while you were at it!!  it's the only problem with that place.  but it's cheap so can't complain too much.

just need to plug weld it in then on to the outer sill.  At the risk of sounding very silly, does the outer sill get welded to the jacking point or does it just butt up against it?
