And here's yet ANOTHER FIC door lock mod. I didnt like the fact that anyone with a standard Scamp key could easily open mine and all other locks or even similar handles everywhere else! This lock works 100 times better! You can shut the door and it will latch without having to turn or activate the handle! Plus, it has a "deadbolt" feature we really desired and like. Finally, if it ever gives trouble (and these rarely do) it's easily replaceable with readily-available locks.

I didnt fiberglass ANYWHERE on the door mod. If you install the lock correctly, it will not leak with the factory provided rubber seal.

Carol mentioned the custom-made striker plates and I've yet to see another installation like this one. I made this striker plate from 11ga 316 Stainless steel. I work at a machine/fabrication company and making this style of strike plate was a breeze...and free.
