Terry, you have said this before, so I got my old door out and looked at it to see how involved it would be.
First thing I noticed? The new Atwood has one clip holding the door closed. The old door? You guessed it, two clips. So cut two holes, patch up one. Check.
Plus the hinges are in a different spot.
That's when I just took off the new door and gave it 4 or 5 coats of rattle-can auto paint silver, with 2 coats of clear over that.
If you would be so kind, perhaps you can point to where you might have laid out the instructions on how to adapt the old door, or failing that, could you write up a post on it?
After looking at my new (painted) door, looks pretty good.
I know the older SS door would be an improvement, but I don't see the conversion job as trivial.
Maybe I'm missing something? Wouldn't be the first time...
