A Little Overkill
Don't get me wrong, I believe in over designing where necessary, just for the solid feel, but 3" nails for a tiny stike plate?
I finally got my necessary dimensions and obtained the door hardware at "the joove". It is unbelievable how not standard old door hardware is. I'm quite happy with how everything is fitting well, but I do still need to run and get some fasteners. I was stealing from the other old doors in the house, just to get all set up to verify it would work.
