The tip about aligning the door hinges is very important. If anything is out of alignment the doors won't work.

Here's what I did: I drilled out the hinge arms to accept a straight pin. Then I taped the door panel in place, and carefully glued the hinge arms into their respective slots in the door and body. Before the glue dried I simply slipped a straight pin into the upper and lower hinge, which assured that the hinges would dry in perfect alignment.

After everything was painted, I used the same pins as the final hinge pins (just snipped them off at the correct length and dropped them into the hole).

Thanks for the tip, I hope to open the doors on one of my deuce, when I start building again.
