    Bill, thanks. I just looked at the manual again and see it does say 5/16, I think I got the 1/8" from the space to leave above the door hinge standoff to account for the brass bushing.

  11. Cutting holes is body and waterfall for the door hinges??

    Seems the manual doesn't have much info other than the top hinge hole cutout. Maybe I missed it if there is more info.

    Yes, you are correct, however as you have noted it won't happen to me.
