the way i've alwayz done it.... iz... go to dunkin dougnuts n get one of those brown coffe straws.... and then get solder... put the solder inside the straw cut it to the size and do the L shape but the str8'n it back out and glue it by the inside so the door is aligned right.... but glue it with hot glue or crazy glue so it holds good... then after its dry the door should open and close....

WELL IF YOU HAVE THE ISSUE OF LRB WITH THE "KNIGHTS QUEST" BIKE ON THE COVER (98' 99' I THINK) IT HAS A FULL TECH ON IT.
