Oh bugger!

There really isn't much to report today. I taped the lock to the door and drilled holes in the right places then discovered when the rivnuts had been inserted that my 40mm M5 bolts went nicely through the lock and aluminum plate but protruded masybe 2mm beyond the plate. That certainly won't do.

In desperation I ordered some 60mm M5 bolts from eBay. There will, of course, be a few days delay before they get here.

This is vaguely what it'll look like albeit hung straight and not dangling from a single screw.

All I can say is dammit and buggerit. I'd not thought my bolts would be too short. Everything has been long so far!
