Our 2000 Ford E350 Wheelchair Truck's Door Hinges are now replaced!

(Flashback to some windstorm in the past)

Well as it happens with these Ford Vans, I go to open the door and a gust of wind grabs the door and swings it open so hard and fast that it bends the jamb and shoves the door in behind the fender so that it forever "clunks" when you open and close it as these two pieces of sheet metal somehow make it past each other.

(back to the present time)

Well yesterday I took the truck out to Jerry's Body Shop in Metropolis, IL here and they proceed to tear the door apart and straighten the jamb and weld in reinforcements inside the door and installed 2 brand new hinges. I've never felt the door work so smoothly before in my life. Now I don't have to do a lifting slam of the door to get it to close, just a gentle push and it closes perfectly every time.

What projects have you been putting off on your wheelchair vehicles? Please look back at some of my older posts for pictures of our rig, we are proud of it I just didn't get my camera out today to document the new hinges.

  1. Notably, there are two main dial rolex replica sale versions that the company offers, and they are differentiated by the way the luminescent material has been applied. The one here fake hublot features a flat black dial with the Arabic numerals and baton hour markers painted on the surface, hence, the lume appears slightly domed or elevated from the plane of the dial. The other Panerai omega replica uk option is the sandwich dial, which is as straight forward as it sounds: there are two dial plates, the bottom one is solid and rolex replica uk has lume applied to it, while the upper one has the hour markers cut-out, revealing the lume underneath. This method gives more depth to the dial, while the "sausage dial" of the Panerai Luminor PAM000 Base Logo is tag heuer replica uk arguably a bit more historically authentic (if that's your thing), and somewhat more simple looking, allowing for other design elements to stand out.
