I've got the same lock set in the garage waiting to go on after I get to that point and figure how to install them :lol:. No directions! and no way to lock on inside.

cliff...

i wasn't aware of no inside locks, but i guess we could always install a slider on the inside... like the ones in some in public restroom stalls... as long as it wouldn't shake itself 'locked' while on the road... that could be bad! :shock:

as for the galley one, i understand the concept of how it works & saw a pic on here in somebody's gallery a couple months ago, but not sure who... if i find it i'll link you...

happy thursday all! :D

got a few small things done last night. dealt with the front window frame/ trim/ whatever you call it/ for a bit...

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

cut down a piece for the galley/ inner cabinets...
Image

messed with some cooler, less bulky light fixtures that my girly-girl spotted the other day... the big kind in the back are being returned...
Image

thing is they're pre-wired for some kinda low-voltage proprietary deck lighting system...
Image

not no mo!
Image

et voila!
Image
(just a test... still need to really 'make' them...)

and ended the night by re-enacting monty python's 'confuse a cat' sketch for nina...
Image

but she was thoroughly unimpressed...
Image

because the only show she likes is teletubbies

rowr

If you got those from Frank, he offers two types. One set is lockable from the inside ($5 more each) and one that's not. I almost didn't notice it before I ordered. I paid the extra $$

What concerned me was: when you lock the outside with a key, you can't use the inside handle to get out. Try your's and see if that's not how it works.

Just my $.02 worth.

hmmm... :thinking:

i see what you mean on his site when it comes to the door handles sold by themselves... one type has an extra piece on there for $5 more... but as far as the kit things that come with all 3 handles, both are the same price and neither appear to have that extra piece, so dunno...

oh well, if mine don't i'll just get a couple of these...

Hey Kent

I was gonna use a locking rod set up for my hatch lid but changed my mind because the one I bought didn't expand out far enough for my liking. It only expanded out maybe an inch on both sides. I decided to use a regular handle and a hasp.

(window looks kinda warped in this pic but really isn't... that's just poster board templates & various crap currently strewn about inside...)
Image

experimenting with the idea of using auto door trim as a seal... but probably won't... it's pretty darn thick...
Image

still trying to wrap mah head around what i wanna do with the galley/ inside cabinets... (so the inside stuff is just tacked with screws right now... no glue yet...)
Image


window removed, annnnnnd...

Kent,

What kind of coat is your creation gonna wear? If you're have it natural or stained, then you have to put the purty venenial 8) side out.

If you are going to skin it in metal or paint then the ugly side of the luan is less "fracky" on a radius roll. I did the same fracky thing on mine.

thanks for the comments all. hope everybody had a good weekend. :thumbsup:

so i *did* end up getting my windows & locks from frank on saturday but haven't messed with them yet. the handles don't have the inside locks & it looks like the trunk handle bar thing *should* be wide enough.

@woodstramp- sent you a pm regarding your comment/ suggestion

got a few galley/ inside pieces glued & screwed...
Image

with help from my lovely lady (who doesn't even complain that my living room looks like a freakin' construction site right now...)
Image
(and who is a true artist with thread btw... totally amazing... but guess i'm biased :D

anyway, also started figuring out wiring...
Image

installed a 3/4" pvc pipe to run wire bundle...
Image
(hammer? who needs a hammer? *pounds with brick* :lol:

Image

Image

...t-minus 12 minutes til i can leave work & go get more done!

...t-minus 11...

...10...

...9...
