I discovered something today:

Aerospace engineers should NOT design door latches.

Jesus H Christ on a Pogo stick….there are 2 lbs of unneeded screws in that door.
Plus the latch is extraordinarily complicated and WAY too heavy for the job it does.

And Cessna wants over $400 for a set of lock cylinders. I gotta talk to a locksmith and see if he can fix ’em.

At least the door locks properly now though.
