Good Afternoon SMF!
Got a little more done today.
I did learn the small propane torch from any hardware store doesn't t work on 1/4 thk metal. And I didn't have a big enough hammer. I did manage to leave dents in the door but it didn't bend one bit.
So I welded the strap down and hit it with a hammer right after I welded it. And that did the trick.
So here's a few pics.
I'm hopping this style of latch will work. I didn't fully weld it in just in case I have to cut it out.
And here's another look. I did do some clean up after this pic....but I was way too wore out to take any more pictures.
If anyone has any tips or if I did anything wrong pleas let me know.
Have a great day.
Thanks for looking Dustin
