The previous owner of my Boler had drilled and then re-drilled again the door latch screw holes. I filled the holes with this J-B PlasticWeld | Plastic Repair Epoxy Putty and drilled original small holes. All damage was hidden with the face plate. It's strong stuff, designed for fiberglass. Can be sanded and drilled. I beleive it would work with a door hinge, though I personally haven't tested it under weight.

On edit: It wouldn't support the surrounding glass and not as good as a back brace but would be a better than new or bigger holes.

Interesting!

Am I looking at wood cabinetry, or is that some kind of a skin over fiberglass?

Thanks!

Francesca

Thanks- I didn't realize that Surfsides came that way! Are the cabinets still in pretty good shape?

Are there any molded fixtures inside at all?

I think the front kitchen Surfsides had fibreglass cabinets, and a small bathroom.

Hi, Thanks for the Info, everything helps. Site question: To reply to a post - what is the difference with "reply to post" and quick reply. And does the title refer to subject? Sorry maybe stupid questions, new here.

Title?

"Quick reply" is for posting a response/question simply and without bells/whistles like photos, smileys etc. "Go advanced" will take you to a page with more choices if you need them.
If you want to address a specific post, hit the "quote" button at that post and a box will come up with the quote in it and space for you to respond.

Per "title": if you mean the little box at "advanced" that says "title", you can use it or not as you see fit....I'll type "Title" in there so you can see what it looks like.

With your permission, O.P.:

Francesca, all ears...

Cool...

It struck me as pretty funny, since everybody around here actually HAS a "farmer tan", and I've never heard the word "terror" attached to it...
