The PO said someone tried to break in, and he had to replace the door latch (knob). It wasn't a pritty repair. I cut an aluminum panel to cover the damage and used Olympic rivets to attach it to the door.
The panel had pilot holes, and my mounting strategy was to drill a corner hole through the panel and door and rivet the corner in place. I then positioned the panel and drilled/rivited the opposite corner. At this point I drilled out the remaining holes and noticed that shavings built up between the door and panel. As a result the panel had to be removed, the savings removed, and then rivited down completly.
How have others handled this shaving problem?
I also had to repair the handle to the right of the door. It was tore loose. The handle was remounted on a 0.125 thick aluminun bar, and the bar was screwed in place. I had to use screws because I wouldn't be able to get the rivet shaver in position to clean the rivet heads, and someday I would like to remove the handle to have it rechromed.
