so let's get this straight, you would hold that thing up at the open butt seam with clamps thru the quarter? Are you back pedaling here or is that what you really do? Maybe you should try it with the strip and some holes to keep your mock up the same. The holes don't lie. you won't have to line it up each time you put it together cause you simply line up the holes. I would never sit there and clamp that big ol seam end to end and line it up EVERY time I put it together. Then again, that's without knowing what makes you think that. Maybe you have screws in the jambs or elsewhere that works decently at holding it up even at the seam? Would love to hear your way and logic on this.
