Out of the Hospital and a question

Postby sportsfreaked » Tue Sep 29, 2015 8:04 pm



Man it's good to be home!! Littlebeaver has sent me well wishes from the site and I appreciate that. I had pneumonia and was in bad shape mainly because of my suppressed immune system from RA (Rheumatoid Arthritis) medicine. In a couple more weeks should be good to go!!
What has anyone used in order to make a grommet in order to hold the side panels on. I was wondering has anyone tried to use that expanding foam stuff for doors and windows. I was thinking if you built a shell somehow or backing to the back of the metal and then spay the foam in and let it harden. You could then cut a small hole for the "pin" from the side panel to go into. It wouldn't last forever but could easily be redone. Any thoughts on this idea? Hopefully it's not to confusing. Thanks again for the well wishes. Ed

Welcome home glad you are getting better. I doubt that foam would work effectively. I wouldn't take a chance on losing a side panel.
