    Hey everyone, So around the bottom of the windows on my barn doors I've got a decent amount of rust popping up. I tried treating it before but it came back pretty quickly. Obviously around the window it's hard to get right in there when sanding, so I guess that's why the rust came back so...

    T4 Conversions
    I used an old basha and cloth-taped some bungies to it to make a cheeky shelter for cooking under out of elements. There is a removable pole in between the doors from outer corners to stop them from closing for any reason. The coverage needs a tweak or two but I'm very happy with it to be...
