Default Entry Door

We went to load the coach today
and when we approached the coach key in hand we found that we did not need it
Some kind soul ripped up the door trying to break in
deadbolt trashed and bottom half of the door
At a minmum will have to reskin and repaint below the paddle handle to the bottom of the door
this is a genuine PAININTHEASS but at least the little heathens did no trash the interior
6 days before we leave for Michigan

Stephen, that is the pits. Does anybody on WOG know of a complete replacement door?

Hope this does not ruin your plans for the MI rally. Planning on seeing you and your family next week.

That sucks! I've been wondering how hard it would be for someone to get in if they really wanted to. Glad there was no other damage. Hope to see you in MI next week.

Your right about the PIA! I hope it doesn't cause you too much trouble coming to Michigan. I have dreamt of being in or near the coach at a time when somebody was trying to do something like that to mine. I won't give the details of my dream because it would be censored, but you get the idea!!

Like defacing a work of Art - what a bunch of low lifes that would do something like that. Good luck and don't let them mess up your trip.

So they beat the *&#&$* out of the door but did not get in?
There was the 200X coach in Dallas that had a full front door but not sure if he still has it...
