    Default Door almost complete

    I framed out an opening in the front of the arch using 2x2 angle.
    Then I built a door frame similarly

    I would like to go back and re-do two things, but no biggie - this will work fine.
    I will likely use ceramic board insulation in the door and sandwich it between two sheets.
    I purchased some wood stove door rope from amazon and will place it so that it gets sandwiched between the "interlocking" angle

    I bought the cam door lock kit and will mount it like the following - with the latch stowing away on the door as opposed to the other way I have seen it where the latch mechanism crosses the door opening.

    Here is the model (from our Leader 2x6)

    Default Moving along

    The door locking mechanism is complete.
    I bought the cam lock kit from eTrailer.com

    Thanks for the suggestion - I would recommend this to everyone who is spending the time to build an arch - you can't ask for a better latching and locking mechanism. Leader uses it on their arches.

    All that is left are some skin panels, paint and insulation!
    Just in time
