4 bolts and yank would be easy if i knew that. still learning things with this. the closer and closer i look at this the rougher and rougher it is from the dude before me. i will fix it correctly dont you worry :)

yea it was but dont worry il fix the hole.

and not with a grommet.

its no where near what i want as a finished product so there are a lot of things i want to do/clean up. huge list. il get there and clean it up one day. but for now its sweet and lol il cut holes if i want :) its the same with my wagon. il do them up for me not for someone else. might take the long way around but il get there.

these are the two cars that il base mine off eventually

yeah fully, I would have been pissed if it was a 55 or something, but I realize it an't a minter.

just trying to save you some work in the long run.

Feel free to ask any questions, I've a wealth of useless infomation.

 

 

 

the drivers door always sag, you can get over sized stainless hinge pins, once you get the old ones out.

this is what you need to remove the old pin

I drilled mine out, which is quite a mission but worked, till I did the bottom one. I removed the running board, jacked the car up and drill from below, I forgot the car was on a angle and drilled out the side of the hinge, another thing I still need to fix!
