Locking Mechanism and New Handle for Original School Bus Door
My wife and I are keeping the original folding bus door for the aesthetic and character. However, the handle mechanism takes up quite a lot of space, and it can only be unlocked from the inside.
Has anyone modified the door opening mechanism to be much simpler than the whole three point handle? Or has anyone created a way to unlock the door from the outside? I'm kind of thinking of an elaborate block and tackle mechanism, but I'm not sure if it's even worth it.
