track weld onto the inner door in a position that misses the sub frame of the doors and twist the direction the striker rods wants to twist when moving the door handle. Also before installing the rod in the goose put a whet on the rodImageImageImageImage
The wake will act as a stop for the handle to stay in position when closed

Once you like the fit, weld everything in place. Next you will need to install a stopper on the inner door to stop in the opening position. Image
Then tighten the jam nuts. Next install the striker plates inside the sub frame. The top and bottom may be different gaps. My top was a 1/2" and the bottom was 1/4"ImageImage

And done! Fire is lit and got some burgers on. Funny story, I left the shop with mack in tow, went to Lowe's to get a ball valve for the drain, parked, got out of truck and a guy asked if he could buy it lol!

Here's a look at the difference an insulated bottom plate in the WC does.

Hi Frank, So it's gone already ?

When you build a chimney on the WC, is there a specific measurement or is it just a "vent" for lack of a better word.


Make no mistake, there ain't no powder in this Puff ! And... I'm not really a crazy person but I play one in real life
