Actually, there has been some talk about enclosing the front gear area with
what could be a removable shelf. It would provide an area to hold tools when
working in the nose gear area and seal the biggest leak (other that the torque
tube cut-outs) helping keeping the cold air leak to a minimum.

Something to consider in colder areas.
