362 Forward cabin doorframe shrinking.

Hi all, my door frame seems to shrinking, since the door no longer closes, despite use of outward bar-clamp and even planning of the door. Does this mean I have the bulkhead issue?

Re: 362 Forward cabin doorframe shrinking.

Was the gap between the door and frame the same all the way around before you put the plane to the door? Are you sure someone didn't hang on the door while it was open which will cause the hinge to deform? Check the tabbing of bulkhead to the hull. Do the chain plates attach to the bulkhead and if they do is the wood dry and sound or wet and rotten due to leakage around the chain plate entrance ?
