Sliding Door Lock Mechanisms Plated

Sliding Door Lock Mechanisms Plated
bigdaveb
The sliding door lock after polished nickel plating. Reinstalled all the pieces and lubed with Super Lube 21030 - very smooth action. The four rivets were partially drilled out in order to get the mechanism open for servicing. Once stripped and prior to plating, the two rivets closest to the latch were drilled out and tapped for an M5x0.8 allen head machine screw. The head of the screw is short enough to reinstall the mechanism without causing an obstruction. The screws that are used to mount the mechanism on the door will also serve the purpose of keeping the mechanism together. The screws holding the rubber buffers will be replaced with stainless steel screws as well.

Vent window latch rivet screws

Vent window latch rivet screws
easy e
I was having a hard time getting the steel rivets flat... so I used some short countersunk slotted screws. The slots oriented horizontal let the slots be hidden behind the vent window seal. When I was installing the whole frame into the door... the round edge bead wanted to be tucked under the frame & wouldn't let the frame go all the way down. After getting the frame to door bolts in... I got them snugged & used a small pick to jab into the bead & it let me work along the bead & pull it out from under the window frame. I grabbed a "trial size" of baby powder & it definitely helped all the rubber parts / painted parts slip past each other for installation.

This is a six pop-out bus.
The pop out latch for the window behind the cargo door has a short spoon.
The tab on the spoon was bent to clear the closet wall, which made sense when we installed the closet.

61Mango with long spoons

This bus has 5 long spoon window latches and one short one on the forward cargo door. Hopefully this will be my next project bus once I can extract it from the snow.
