Dude. Your dad tacos and salsa are amazing. You should start advertising it on your thread.

Got side tracked with some other things but I have been tinkering. Finally got to the door frame. It was busted up pretty good. Seems like a really poor design, there is hardly any metal keeping the door together where the dead bolt goes thru. Going to be out of town the next two weekends. Hope to order metal and re skin the door in a couple weeks. Big Thanks to Jerry Burak at Burak Bye Products for welding that crappy frame and Greg at Inland RV for the door frame template.

Sadly I will need to wait a couple weeks to "close the door" on this phase.

It's an open and shut case... Seems like you found a real craftsman to work on the door. Great work!

Haha! Yes I did, hes the dad of an ex girl friend. Great guy even better welder. The door was pretty busted up but it fits pretty good now. Hope to clean up the frame this next week and order the new metal to re skin it.

Door

Jav,
Any tricks you can throw out there? My door frame is busted up also.
I have some cracks where the lock actuator goes into the striker plate.
Also, my hinge is shot.

Can wait to get closure, nya nya!

(I don't think I have the skills to do what Kip did, but need to start somewhere)

Thanks in advance,

TIMK

Funny how the cracks are right where the rivets mount, and why was it riveted in such a weak spot?? Removed inside sheets and insulation, dreading removing the door off the hinge but the hinge needs work anyway. My welder told me I'd need to remove the outer skin too, if I didn't want it marred in the process. Not looking forward to investing in the Olympic rivet shaver, but I suppose I'll need it in the inventory anyway.
