A couple of months ago I brought the new trailer down to my Dad's repair shop in Los Angeles. Soooo excited!
Well, so far, we've replaced the axle and have begun to do check out the electrical problems. This is the part my father the mechanic is taking care of. The interior is my responsibility.
I was preparing to replace the jalousie window brackets in the door of the 1965 Caravel
, but it occurred to me that I had better make the door structurally sound before I worry about the window.
The body of the trailer has a dimple from the door knob that tells me how the door got into the condition it's in. It pulls away from the body just a little bit at the top and the bottom of the door. Upon further inspection, I found that the frame inside the door has a crack in it.
My question is: Have any of you repaired a cracked interior door frame? How do I go about it? Does the skin have to be removed to weld it? If so, inside skin or outside skin, or both?
And, yes, I'm still excited, but I'm getting impatient. I want to get the trailer home and get started!
As ever, thanks for the help!
