OC, I thought I was a master fabricator and doodad maker, but you always make me think (and spend money). Thanks for all your ideas.

Below is a photo of the motor and drive gear for the wardrobe slide in the bedroom. The chain drive sprocket on the gearbox is 1/2" lower than the tension ends of the chain, is this the way it should be? The motor and gearbox assembly are a good 1 1/2" out of square with the roof of the slide. Should I remount the assembly so the chains run true with the sprocket drive of the gearbox. Is this a failure waiting to happen or is this a case of if it's not broke don't mess with it.

Sorry about making you spend money, but the covers are pretty cheap.

Are y'all riveting the reinforcing plate to just the inner skin of the door? Is that skin strong enough to stand up overtime?

The screws from the gas struts were only ever in the inner skin most likely. Could not be any worse than just two screws holding it together. Now there is 10!
