these doors are a little tough to cut out, theyre pretty thin along the top and the curve at the "A" pillar.......i almost have one cut out, then i gotta do my favorite thing.......make hinges! grrr! LOL these hinges wont be bad, theyre straight, so not as tough as a door with compound curves....

i sure will Virgil........i dont care of it takes me 3 hours to cut them open, as long as i dont break the body. i had to glue the firewall in, and add a support across the body for strength.....

What are you using for hard line to make your hinges from Bryan? The only thing I have that's strong enough is coat hanger wire, and It's just way too big.

My hinges are like baseball bat sized compared to the trunklid on the cuda, lol.

Corey, i am using some thin brass rod to make the hinges, i usually use brass tube as well, but i had to use plastic tube this time, im out of the correct size of brass..
