    Matt, My pleasure and you are welcome any time. I was glad to have the space mates. Hope your first Hershey was a memorable one!

    Signed up a couple new members today during my shift in the BCA tent today and overall for the week the BCA tent volenteer staff signed up more new members (around 30) this year than we have in a while (maybe 10 years or more since it has been that high). Awesome job by my fellow volenteers who man the tent and thanks to Wray and Ron for donating the spaces and time and the cookies to the effort!

    That photo represents the meeting of the BCA not totally grey haired Division. Although Lamar may be expelled next year... We can replace him with Marck...

    Today was a wash out, still it's Hershey!
  8. I found that i had to use an awl or pick type tool with a flashlight to 1. find the hole and 2. give me a sense of the "angle of approach" for the screw. with that it was easier to get the screws in and done.
  9. Actually the way the doors and window cranks attach with the "jesus" clips the thicker escutcheons would actually do nothing. The cranks are set by the indentation in the spline that the "jesus" clip sits in. Thicker escutcheons would just make it harder to put the cranks and handles on. Just something from my experience. So if you want to get the door handle further off the fabric you have to get the spline out farther somehow. For those of you asking what a "jesus" clip is... well I don't know the proper term, I've just always heard them called by that term.... because when you try to put the door handle on and they spring out and fly off into never never land to only be found months or years later you say "jesus where the hell did that clip go". (apologies to to the religious amoungst us...)
  10. The handles are splined so they can be adjusted, mine are near horizontal to be honest.
  11. These are factory photos for '38. Note the door handle arrangement front and rear.
