This is great! I was looking through my miscellaneous parts the other day from the previous owner of my caravel
. I found the missing "L" on mine. I thought it was long gone until I see a wadded up paper towel in the bin with other parts. I opened the paper towel to find my "L". I wasn't sure how I could repair it, but this looks like the answer! So, did you use a Butane torch. I have one of those, but do not have an acetylene welders torch. Will that work? Is that what you used?
Another question is if this same method might work to fix a cracked door frame?
