Stainless Steel panel upgrades - How to


So, yes I have two stainless steel panel upgardes for my 20120 International 23: One for the water heater, one for the furnace.

In scoping the installtion process out ( no instructions) I see a small pin-like hinge with a riveted "keeper" for holding each to the body of the trailer.. I thought I would drill one out, slide the other out, remove the old panel and install the new panel on the existing pins, then rivet the "keeper" back on.

Does this make sense?

Has anyone done this job?

Many thanks!

I installed both. You should not have to drill the rivet out. The hinge pin just snaps into place. Your model should be the same design on the hinge pin.

New panels

You do not have to drill out anything, I'm presently on vacation and replaced both panels with limited tools. Both doors where easy to replace and look great by the way.
I wish they added these while in to factory.
