Figured out how to fill the vent gap and added a pair of little shelfs (ace hardware "over the door" shelf with the tabs cut off).
5 minute job to drill a 4 1/16 holes in the glass wall and make some tiny hooks from some 1/16 stainless welding rod to hold the shelfs.
Bumped my head for the last time on the awning
supports. Fun noodles even match the side the awning
, well sort of. At least I can see the darn things and they work as a door bumper too...
