Repairing Nessie's door

Light: SureFire/Milky Spit ML1 (gen5 host, Cree P3-WC, McR17XR reflector)

Spent the evening at a Port O'Brien show at Steynberg Gallery in SLO. At the end of the night I had to fix the door of the tour van, Nessie. The lock pull for the sliding door had broken off and was obstructing the unlocking mechanism, leaving them unable to load their gear. I had to get in there with my ML1 and Swiss Army (pliers mainly) to rip the obstructing plastic guide ring out. Afterwards, I used my Benchmade Griptilian to cut a straw to fit over the lock mechanism and act as a temporary guide until they could come up with a better fix.
