So about two weeks ago May opened her passenger side door and:



So my buddies at KGPR sent out some new hinges. It was not too bad to remove the old ones, only had to drill out 4 of the 15 old screws and tap one set of threads. The new hinges fit nice.



Door lined up pretty good, needs a bit of fine adjustment.



It shuts much better now. Just need to save up for all that new door rubber.

Maybe after the front end drop and the new motor.

cheers

Need to raise the door up a bit. It is a two or three person job.

Maybe Saturday...

Awesome project Dann, although you guys should change up the color once in a while! Shocked

Dann was nice enough to stop what he was doing and make some shims for May's door.

It's a beautiful thing now!

My wife is so happy now that the door actually shuts without a lot of effort.

You are the man... Thank you much!

No front end yet.

The beam was to be done, but I haven't checked in yet to see if it is available for pickup.

Anyone want to take a road trip to the Bay tomorrow if it is indeed ready?
