Door for my 63

Cleaned up my door-within-a-door. Lots and lots of layers of gasket materials of various ages. I exposed these tiny little holes along the top edge. Can anyone confirm these are simply to aid in the adhesion of a gasket? Any photos to show which gasket material goes where? Click image for larger version

Sorry I can not help you with the holes but I am interested if the process you used to clean that edge. I have may several runs at mine and have not gotten near your results.

Thanks, I have to laugh at myself. I dried tried all the solvents on my shelf with the Goof Off sitting right next to the others. I have not noticed the little holes on mine but when I clean it I will see if they are on my 64. In case you are looking for a gasket for the doorI I found one that fit pretty well at Vintage Trailer supply.

That must be a door within a door thing. I looked on our 55 and I do have the snakebite holes partially up the latch side of the FRAME, not the door. On the 55 they had a back gasket on the jamb of the door opening frame. The gasket would slide over the edge of the frame and the inner skin would be riveted thru the gasket into the jamb extrusion. In my mind, two rivets adjacent to each other thru a back gasket would have less “tear out” than one rivet. Maybe on the 63 they eliminated the back gasket on the door opening frame and placed the gasket on the edge of the door itself. But I see no reason for rivets. Other than that, I don’t have a clue. Good luck and let us know what you find out. Bubba

Yes! The solvent shelf is pretty impressive for most us. I find my self reaching mostly for Bon Ami powder and scratchy pads.
