HI ya,The flapping can be stopped with this smart item witch can be clipped onto the awning edge and attached to a guy line:
It´s a Danish homepage, but a foreign trademark, so it should be possible to find in the US.
A good source for mosquito screen is: https://www.mosquitocurtains.com/store/There’s something wonderful to be said about the “less elegant”, magnetic solution; swoop, I’m in and it closes by itself behind me, instantly and unassisted -- swoosh, I’m out and it closes by itself behind me, instantly and unassisted.
How about no threads exposed? Use female eyebolts.
If you have access to end of extrusion use 1" 5/16-18NC carriage bolt. No access then use 80/20 1" T-slot stud part # 3295. Galvanized 5/16-18NC eyebolt is part # 3019T15 from McMaster-Carr. 5/16" thick x 1" OD nylon spacer is part # C38520 from Product Components Corp in Martinez Ca. 1-800-336-0406. Use a 5/16" flat washer between the eyebolt and nylon spacer. The pictures show 80/20 installed on a 03 Dakota. Been there outside everyday for 9 years. Did notice I need to replace the nylon spacers. A couple are starting to crack. I have used the rails and eyebolts to tie down conveyors for delivery. Work great since you can move them anywhere on the length of 80/20. Use screwdriver in loop to loosen and tighten eyebolt. They have even been used to tie down a motorcycle. The nylon spacers can also be cut from Nylon 6/6 from McMaster-Carr. Part # 8628K49 for 7/8 OD x 3/8 ID x 5'.
On the NCV3 Sprinter you can reach into the cavities to put the nut on the carriage bolt. I recall the bolt closest to the rear doors was a bit difficult.Dave,
Can I ask how your 1515 rails are attached to the walls of the pickup?
Are you able to access the cavity behind the sheet metal to tighten the nut of a carriage bolt? Or is there some way to do a blind connection?
I'm thinking of using some 80/20 rails in the conversion i'm planning for a Ford E-series van. I can't access the inside of van ribs to simply fasten the 80/20 with carriage bolts. the solution I see is to put Rivnuts in the van wall, screw aluminum angle to the rivnut, and then attach the 80/20 rail to the angle using the standard carriage bolts.
Am I missing a way to do this more cleanly? Thanks in advance for any tips! I'm just learning about 80/20 and have a ways to go....
Mocking up some wood to check sizing of the upper cabinet....
How did I choose the size?
so there's the top rail... the ceiling will insert into the gap above the curved rail:
and hopefully the combination of a fastener on each strut.. combined with a rail on the wall below coming out will be strong enough
Just showed my wife this picture. She laughed when I told her this is what our next house/garage will look like. She asks 'well where does my car get to live?' 'Well in the other garage attached to the house, of course. I live here... with my sprinter, Trek Fuel EX8 and WR250R.'Putting the interior back in the van this morning for some upcoming vacation
