No, that's not an ideal location for access, but I couldn't fit them in the wing roots like I'd originally tried without using hard 90s somewhere. This way if one filter is blocked, it only blocks one side.

Besides, after the first couple flights I should only be pulling them at annual time, and those covers will be off anyway.
