I have a 1960 Compact. It has its original screen door, but...for some reason, the previous owners drilled or ran several sheet metal screws through the aluminum in various spots. It doesn't look good but it has all the parts including the sliding pieces that expose the door handle. Am I out of line in thinking that someplace like a hardware store where they make screens could make a new door to my dimensions and then I could insert the middle sliding section myself?
It looks like all the holes that were drilled were for a wire to help keep the door square. Does anyone have a good idea on how to help keep the new screen door I'm making square without having to run diagonal wire across it?
Most of the time, if you rescreen the frame, that will keep the frame tight. Just make sure that you have the frame square, before you start.
You could add small corner mending plates to the 4 corners on the inside of the door frame. Don't over tighten the screws. OR check at the local box store in the screening department. They sell replacement corners for the inside of the screen tube frames.
