Ok, this is too funny. Hi Richard, this is Ricky from the other night at "Who Killed the Electric Car." I talked to you briefly about a controller for your Bradley GT before the movie started.... btw, I sent you an email if you haven't read it already.
Anyways, if you want a second opinion on your hatch lock I can look at it, probably at the next EAA meet, but I've seen several of them fail here in the heat. Not that it's a guarantee that it would have prevented the failure, but no one ever lubricates the latches and locks like they're supposed to.
