Once the piece is cut and out you can still see the bolts all you do is slip the piece back in and give the nut a turn to hold it tight....You want to be carefull not to cut the hinge supports...That would be bad...I started cutting at the holes then put some bolts in right awayso the piece would stay in place when all the cutting was done and not fall on the floor or most likely my foot..
I stated in my original post and in other post of this thread that I have cut the sheetmetal that holds the door panel to the door. That is easy, however there are still a bunch of areas that I am not able to clean. Your door is much simpler than my door for some reason???

Take the skin off and clean both pieces as previous mentioned.

Epoxy prime both halves before reassembly.

They sell that tool at Harbor Freight. I used it to remove the skin from a trunk lid, works well. After blasting and epoxy primer I sprayed eastwood heavy duty anti rust then I just hammered the edges back over.

Actually, I think the Chinese are getting this stuff from the patent attorneys..the Chinese arnt steeling the patents the patent attornnys probably are.
I went through all of this a while back when I wanted to get a patent for a self connecting trailer .I got the idea from watching my neighbor try to guide his wife to line up the ball with the trailer after 4-5 trys he got all pissedoff ,hoped in the truck and promptly put the trailer hitch through the tailgate...I made all the proper drwings and actually built one .I contacted a company that does everything for you they even build them but in the end they get 98% of everything...I didnt think that was such a good deal so I didnt go for it...I'm now wondering if mabee I should, 2% of something is better than nothing.

You can probably buy these hooked screwdrivers somewhere in China but i had these chewed out screwdrivers so i sharpened the ends into a ball point on the bench grinder then heated the ends and quenched in oil. I hate taking tension springs off as they normally fly off or you end up with pinched fingers from pliers. I call them the "hookalls." They are good for yanking out oil seals too.

I had a friend who tried to market a product called a Threshlock. It locked a door by bringing up a bar across the bottom of a door preventing anyone from kicking it in. Anyway the cost of marketing it, applying for patent, AND INSURANCE almost bankrupt him. The product was too expensive and didn't fly. I am one of those guys who just wants to work hard, get paid on Friday and be able to leave it behind until Monday. It is way to late in my life to think about getting rich.

On the other hand I am rich. Just don't have money.

Hi 327.
I have taken your advice and have some more home made tools to post on Home Made Tools website. After signing up i thought i would post some pics but do you think i could find where to start. There are only 4 headings there Home,
Forum, Builders and About. I have looked under all headings and found nowhere there to indicate "Post New Tools" or similar. I have missed something obvious there and posted a question there without a reply so.............any ideas.....
Al.
