We've been Arizona since Oct. 20th in our new place. The Wildcat is being delivered to us in AZ.monday so we can camp with it when ever this winter. Then it is used a few weeks each way to and from the U.P. Michigan. The weather is nice 70 in the day and 40s in the night.

They picked up from the U.P. and delivering it to AZ. and it's stuck in Oklahoma City with bad weather.

Remember!! Just leave something for the next guy and the BVTC is mine!!

Bob, I'm in Casa Grande, Az. that is 180-200 miles away from Quartzsite. Trying to convince DW we need a road trip the end of January to California and stop along the way.

Made the crudest of crude temporary mods today using Vise grips and adjustable wrenches. If it works while we're in FL, I will refine it and make it removable and a little more presentable.

But, of course, it's not one of my projects if I don't screw something up. I can't flip the door down far enough to get the drawer to pull out.

I either need to raise the drawer slides OR change out the handle on the door. We don't care for what's there, so the latter might be our solution.

Door close ok? Maybe need to notch cab. face frame for hinges to set hinges lower, than move door back to it's centered position. Or, can the plywood be removed?

Door closes well. I was able to reuse the "bulldog" clip at the top. That's what dictated my height and actually is why I messed up the clearance. When I dry fit things and checked, I had the door lower.

Possible removed. I didn't want to mess with the handle and changing thickness of the drawer front.

But, I think the drawer might still not clear the clip at the top even if I take the backer plywood off.

Yeah, with the door lower like that, there's no place for it to lay down. How about a side hinged door?

That could work. We'll see. We don't like the door hardware anyway- could be a good time to make a change. Or raising the drawer slides should be easy.

I dunno. It'll be a week+ before I get back to it.
