First may you all have and enjoyable 4th. The strength of our nation will always shine thru.
I know this is a small, however was the inside of the deck hatches painted the same as the deck ? the inside lip of the hatch frame what color was it painted ?

The drawing states that they were to be painted gray on the outside and white on interior surfaces (note 1) but several photos of boats in theater show that the interior was painted dark / maybe deck color. The 2 photos below may be deck colored but unfaded. The lower frame rim that seals against the hatch gasket looks to be unpainted:

Good job on the 20mm Mike. You sure are productive!

What does this mean, in your previous post?:

In Dick's Elco drawing collection, the turret plan is ELCO_Roll_5535-2_72SCAN_00528.pdf / ELCO_Roll_5535-2_72SCAN_00527.pdf. The machine gun mount brackets is ELCO_Roll_5535-2_72SCAN_00522.pdf. I used them on my drawing here: http://www.pt103.com/PT_Boat_Components_Turrets.html. I also have the layout for the limiting stops on it which should come in handy. The Elco drawings for them are not accurate above the support pieces and mentions that they are to be constructed from full scale templates that were. Note that the 105 would not have had the door shown here:
