Inspection frame & cover - fuel tank strap

Hello, I hope you are all well. 

I am recovering the wings of my -3 and found out that a previos owner did a recover and seemingly decide to get rid of both the inspection cover and frame of the fuel strap.

Could any of you busy in a restoration process kindly share the dimensions for parts 108-1101013 and 014?

Given the actual supply chain circumstances I rather go the Owner Produced Parts road to solve the issue. 

A section of a drawing with the information would be much appreciated. 

Take care.

Univair has the frames and access panels. I know you want to make them, but how much is your time worth to you? The panels are actually stamped, so they look more professional. I bought them a long time ago, but I don't remember them costing that much.

Hi resto108, 

Yes, I saw that Univair sells them (not sure if has them in stock) but they are already not working full capacity, they are not manufacturing and their suppliers are also límite in production.

On top of that I am based 5000+ miles from USA. 

On the other hand, I like the handwork and to know every detail of my aircraft.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Alonso I have my panels off and could send dimensions - do you still need them?

Hey Andy, thanks for the offering. In the end, I bought them from Univair 👍
