    Looking good, Jerry! Glad she finally got a good coat of paint!
    Are you doing any Michigan comps thus year?
    We'll be at Lowell, Silver Lake and Sparta.

    The outside where I trimmed it is almost invisible. Glad to hear you got your good seal.
    Yes I did. The largest challange was that I had planned for 3/8" rope. I welded the door on with that in mind. I did have some pretty good gaps to fill and I like said before it took several days to cure. I did add a second layer on some of it as the gaps was to big.

    It seals well and that is the main thing. Looks good with the door closed.

    I will no doubt get better at this with some more practice. The new pit will be different. Will probably start a new insulated pit next week. Just don't tell my wife.

    Time will tell. I see that Lowell will not be possible due to work. Silver Lake and Sparta are more into the fall. Got my fingers crossed.

    When is the Valpo??

    I apologize in advance if this has been asked and answered. Where did you get the air tight latches? Have the rubber stops held up under the heat of the grill?

    Carr-Lane has a lot of these types of toggle clamps.

    You can probably find them cheaper thru Northern tool, but you do get what you pay for.

    Brian I ordered mine through the Clamp-Zone on Ebay. They are brand name at a resonable price.

    The rubber stops do not hold up. I will continue to work out a springe loaded solution, but just have not had the time.

    What I have been doing is replacing the bolts with round head stove bolts when the rubber boots burn off.

    These do rust and I replace them about once a year. I priced Stainless I do do not want to afford those.

    If I do figure something else out I will post some pictures. If you or anyone has some better ideas I am all ears.

    I believe in the gift of the Beaver!

    Hope that is what you were looking for. If not post again!

    I was honored to meet Jerry in person. And I was honored to cook on it for a few minutes at the eagle practice!
