Well, Monday's my day off so to the (inside) trailer we go!
(As in my previous post and its 9 questions, I will number the questions to help you help me. Thanks for those who answered yesterday's questions! I'm still hoping for a few answers, if you have a few minutes to look...)
By the time the garage had gotten warm enough, I had designed my support to lift the roof a little and see if that would straighten the door. In one word: NOPE!
I tried lifting up the structure under the door. Nope! By the way, the frame seem to be eaten up pretty bad under the door. Could that be my problem? I'm really bummed about this: I need to fix this before I go on... Any suggestions? (#1
My pictures are upside down: the iPad always plays that trick on me, no matter what... The door frame is 26-inch wide at the top, 26 1/4 in the middle and 26 1/2 at the very bottom.
By the way, what do you guys do so that the door doesn't open too much, go rub against the molding and get scratched? (#2
I tried to take out my windows
, that was second on my to-do list. Well... I managed to take both single jalousie windows
(stove and door).
The two double jalousie windows
each have a few rivets that won't come loose, especially those which were not cut off properly ("outies"?). Any special trick to take out rivets? (#3
) I was drilling with 1/8'' bit. I tried the buffer but that can seriously damage the window frame is one misses the rivet.
Any trick to take out the "stem" of the rivet after the head came off? (#3b
I took good notes of all the different rubber seals I'll need. I'll probably have to order them.
Now that I have a few windows
out, I'm wondering: Do I need to wait until I'm done painting
to put them back in? (#4
In the category "not-that-important-question-but-I'm-curious": Would there be any good reason to leave the fake stove fan in? Would that metal box prevent fire progression in case of high flames on the stove? Is it purely for looks or does it serve a purpose? (#5
Would you change the ceiling vent or keep it as is (with a new butyl tape, of course!)? (#6
Here it is, probably upside down, with a few more pictures.
Can all these grills still be purchased? (#7
How do we paint
the roof? (#8
) By standing on it?! I would not think so...
PS: Tried to delete two of the last pics but they still show up... I'm not trying to understand at this point!
