You don't think you got a good deal on this? Look up the price of a new one, and you may change your mind. If the bearings are in good shape, I'd say you got a real good deal!

Nice work!

When the doors are closed, how do you keep the cold from coming in around the edges? How are they sealed? Do the hydro cyls keep the doors closed, or are they mechanically latched...
