Just became the owner of a 2003 patriot. I am wanting to use some of the winter months to do a few mods and upgrades. I want to replace the acorn nuts on the door (rusted) with stainless. Is the door attached with rivets like the interior cabinet acorn nuts? I tried turning one but it does not seem to unscrew. Do I have to cut away the carpet on the inside to replace these things?

We were stationed on Whidbey Island at one time. We made tons of blackberry jelly and Oregon grape jam.

Thanks ORLavender. I have decided to just leave them for now. I steelwooled the rust off and painted them with some rustoleum. I will look at replacing them at a later date. If its not broke, don't fix it. Trying not to open a can of worms until i've got more time.

just an fyi to all casita owners, i've found a loose bolt or two on the door, so i make it an annual habit to check and retighten them. another casita owner (1985 PD) almost lost her door on the highway, apparently all of her bolts were ready to fall out completely. safe travels, y'all..............
