The hole on the backside of the door got some attention today. Unfortunately this is a half finished project. I need to buck two of the rivets on this inner beauty ring. I loaned my bucking equipment to my buddy John so he could put things back together on his trailer for the WDCU Installation Rally.
The one in the finger tip comes through right at the edge of the frame that holds the screen in place. I do not want to see the back of an Olympic here. The other spot is on the sleeve. That rivet is right next to the lock shaft and it is a tight clearance. I will be taking care of this at the Rally.
I also still need to rivet the front beauty ring on. It is raining big time here, so that will need to wait until it stops. A little polishing is needed and some vulkem, neither mix too well with rain. All in all I am extremely pleased with the solution for hiding these gaps that bothered me so.
Looks worse than it is, but it was making guys at Chevron station (in Sisters, OR) nervous. I believe it's been somewhat contained now (2 hours later). OK, I have not hit any traffic to speak of and made it to Prineville just now. You eclipsoids: Eugene/Springfield Hwy 126. Stayed on 126, 242 closed, to Sisters (looks like party town), 126 to Redmond, north to Smith Rock Road, alternative to prineville, no traffic at all. Bartender in Prineville said they got traffic straightened out yesterday. So that's my up-to-date report. It might get crazy tomorrow, but this is just one more example of talking to local people instead of relying on yr. iPhone or yelp. -
