Cabinet Handles


Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me what the distance is between the screws on the cabinet door handles in a caravan if they're all the same? I've just put a deposit down on an abbey 417 and would like to replace the handles as they are pitted. I'm so excited I want to look for some now! ; )

Hi Shug

Thanks for your reply. I have to wait a week for my van to arrive, can't wait to get in it and give it a thorough clean and spruce up! Everything looks good apart from the handles, and the fridge shelves and ice box are slightly corroded. I've heard a soak in coke may improve the latter!

Hurry up next Saturday lol!

I know how you feel, it's great isn't it? I replaced the shelves inside our fridge but what a price!! If I remember it was about £70 for the pair, the boss still doesn't know how much they were. I hadn't heard about the coke trick but I'll pop up to Sainsburys this morning and buy some of their cheap stuff to try out on the old ones.

 

Good luck

I am sure that a lot of folk would like to know of the result, I think nearly all get a bit scabby as time goes on. Please keep us posted. ......Peter

I sorted the wire "bottle retainer" on the door of my Dometic fridge which was corroded by rubbing it down and giving it a coat of silver spray "Hammerite" ( the "flat" finish not the "hammered" finish) - looks a treat :)

Will keep you posted with how the coke cleaning method performs, not expecting miracles but hey worth a go. I didn't realise you could get spray on hammerite, will try this if I'm not happy with the coke results!

I'd got some left over from doing up my garden furniture - it worked a treat on the fridge parts :)
