I'm glad you spent the time to do it correctly! Now go back and look at some of the horrible jobs that Dan Treace posted!

I have no reason to believe that my column had been apart before I had at it. The factory riveting job wasn't anywhere near as nice as yours, Mark. Neither was mine.

Nice job, Mark! This thread will provide a nice mini - tutorial for those who have to do this job in the future.

Interesting, Looked at this thread this morning, and I would have sworn I'd posted right after Wayne saying,"What Wayne said!" Fabulous job, when can you do mine? :-)
