Congrats on the DIY repair, Rob. If you ever do need any work done by Packard Shutter, Reno Farinelli is a great guy to deal with and does a wonderful job refurbishing old worn Packards. They come back freshly painted, and are just like new mechanically as well. The cost is a bargain, too. He refurbed several for me and sent back my "new" shutters for about 1/3 the new price.
