Default PlaneAround door lock pictures

I'm installing PlaneAround door lock on a new installation along with the Aerosport door handles. I've read the instructions on the door locks and enlarged the pictures Sean provides. The enlarged pictures are grainy and I can' t make out some details.

If you have some pictures of your installation I'd really like to see them.

Thanks

Jerry

Maybe a couple of the pics on these posts might help?
I probably have more if you’re looking for something more specific.

Here's a couple of pics of mine. 1st pic is showing mechanism without 2 door halves being bonded. 2nd shows close up of the aluminum tape and top "drip strip" I installed to prevent epoxy from getting into spots that might bind it up.

Also, here's a link to a video I found VERY helpful.

I just finished mine, if I were to do it again I would probably do it before I glued the halves together. I was able to complete it, but it would have been easier to do separate.

One lesson learned the hard way on exactly the installation you are doing. Be sure to install the Plane Around 180 with the Van's provided actuator gears in the door pocket at the location specified in the Plane Around and Van's instructions. I made the mistake of centering the actuator in the pocket with the Plane Around plate centered, figuring it would give better clearance for the lock. However, the connecting "rods" provided with the Plane Around package are designed for the actuator mechanism to be located per the Van's instructions, with is not centered in the pocket. As a result, I had to have new "rods" created so that they were the right length for the location I placed the actuator within the door.

If you can be more specific as to what your questions are and what parts you want to see, I may have some photos of my build that could help.

Regards,

That's interesting, I had the planearound and aerosport, installed the gear mechanism with the aerosport strike plate to locate it. No issues.

Default Lock and key

I would like advice on modifying the door lock mechanism. To be clear Iím not talking about any of the latches but specifically the lock and key mechanism which can be easily overridden when locked. A while ago I saw some pictures from someone who posted Pictures of a modification but I can no longer find it.

Thank you,
Dan

No wonder users are moving to Facebook, much easier to post a picture
