Ever since I saw that thing in the Scamp
'parts store online' I've been trying ti imagine how it would be installed & work?? Also been trying to figure out for sure what is the 'Bottom Door Slide' & whether or not its function is structural or just another 'maybe nice to have' item?? On my Scamp
it is rusted and the door bottom only makes contact with it for about 3" before closing completely. Appears it does prevent the door from 'binding' on the weather stripping so perhaps I should just take it off, sand blast & paint
then reinstall. It works to 'hold' the hinge side of the door out about a quarter inch so I'm gonna need to install additional weather striping at the bottom after I get all the other 're-work' done. Also, some PO had apparently encountered an obstruction that took a good sized 'scrape' off the lower body & damaged the door edge trim which may require re-glassing & trim replacement. Here's pix, & no, the wheel ain't tilted, just the pic angle...
