Isn't it always the way - as soon as one thing gets fixed a couple more start making problems!

Keep putting one foot in front of the other!

not much progress lately, but managed a couple of hours this afternoon. lots of welding and grinding, and primer to protect it.

so much for leaving it alone,

got passenger door frame made and hung, also made decision to have slidy windows.



the door skin(2mm) will overlap onto body, with a small rubber seal behind. the hinges allow this.





the skin will move away from body when door opens.

no pics, but spent a few hours today experimenting with door catches, got it mocked up after lots of measuring, drilling, bolting then welding. then grinding. door catches real nice and closes.

hopefully do some more tomorrow, along with door skin hopefully.

Sliding windows is a great idea. Really simplifies the doors as there is so much less to go wrong than having window winder mechanisms.

the door skin(2mm)
