Does anybody else that has the barn doors notice that the trim screws don't seem to stay put? I constantly have to replace the screws holding in the trim panels around the barn door windows. They either work loose or fall out all together. Seems like every 3 months or so I have to either tighten or replace screws......

Some of mine appear to be missing, but not all. Hadn't really noticed a trend. Never heard anything about it until you mentioned it. Try loctite?

when you get new screws pick up a tube of locktite. the permanant type. before you put new screws in coat all the threads of each screw with the locktite and put them in right away, as soon as you put the locktite on. this should hold them in unless the holes are striped. if the holes are striped i have a trick for that to, take a small household staple streaten it out and put it in the hole before the screw then screw the screw in holding the staple in place if any of the staple is still visible take a pare of diagonal cutters and cut off any excess.
this should solve the problem.

Hey I have been very distracted but now that spring is around the corner I am out working on my truck again. The Barn doors are doing great, I had the pins and bushings replaced though $350 from the Dealer, $100 from my buddy at the body shop ;-)
