It looks like a door designed for the next Zombie Apocalypse. No one is getting through that door! No need for screens!


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

Getting there ;-)

I just noticed the headlights on your PT are pretty badly weathered. With all the tools at hand, why don't you polish them clear again? It will make a difference in the dark & wet months ahead.

That is on my to do list. However, since 99% of our driving is during daylight hours, it has not been at the top of the list.

Our son had polished his a few years ago, and it made a big difference. I'm sure this will as well.

Thanks!


If you want to do something, you will find a way.
If you don't, you will find an excuse.

Quick question. Are you planning on making a screen for that door? Or are you going to use one of those magnetic ones?




I only plan on having a screen for the top part. I was thinking about using one of those that pull from one side, or maybe mount one at the top that pulls down like the old blinds used to.

I haven't checked specifically for something in this size, but I have seen the ones that pull from the side and are magnetically held in place on the one side. They seem to work pretty well.

That would make a nice package, and be out of the way when not in use.

A chainsaw with a nice sharp chain would cut through there like a hot knife through butter. Lol.

A 1" drill bit, plus a jig saw, or reciprocating saw would have a hole through there or almost any rv in a matter of a minute or two.

Even most houses are easy targets unless the outside is stone or brick.

A steel door on a house, a drill and metal cutting jig saw can cut the lock out in short order.

Just depends on how badly a person wants to get inside.

I think I posted something like this before, but this is a better picture than I had earlier.

This is a piece of 1/8" plywood that I bought at Home Depot, and it has strips of fiberglass embedded in it every so often, which helps to strengthen it somewhat.

I'm sure, inquiring minds wanted to know. ... Either that, or nobody cares. Lol..

I started cutting some plywood for the ceiling today. Here's a pic of one piece, that I have propped up for the moment.

It's not glued into place yet, I just wanted to get a feel for how it would fit, and how easy/difficult it will be to get it into place when I do apply adhesive.

Sure, 6 different keys in 6 different locks only offers 720 possible permutations. I'm sure the wife will be thrilled to run through them every time she comes home from getting the groceries while on a trip. LOL

Resolution isn't high enough to tell if fulltimin is funning us, but I suspect he is.

It does look good.


There are 24 hours in every day - it all depends on how you choose to use them.
