Busy day today. Pulled the motor, trans, exhaust, and fuel tank. The junk pile is growing!

Just cleaning up a few things and made a dump run to get rid of junk parts. I may have a buyer for my bracket car! If it sells it will be full speed ahead.

Well got some bad news this weekend. The buyer for my 67 backed out. So this will be a slow build but I will get it done. I'll post as I get things done.

I guess you can ask that here, seeing nobody else has them either.

Best way I've found is to take the door off and lay it on saw horses.

You cut the out the section of the jamb where the bar is spot welded with a thin cut off wheel , front and back.
Then you slide the bar out ,with the jamb pieces attached.

Separate the bar from the sheet metal pieces and then tack weld the pieces back in where they were.
Continue tacking until almost a solid weld, then grind and spot putty the jambs..

On some cars, you can drill the spot welds out on one end and not have to cut a window on both ends.
Once the bars are out, make sure the door shell is not able to be twisted.
In that case , weld the corners of the skin to the frame or brace accordingly.
Those door beams add quite a bit of structure to some models.

Call me if you need to..

I would suggest removing all of the easy stuff first because it will be light for U/SA 3030 lbs. I have a 79 U/SA mustang Ghia with the standard easy stuff removed-heater box-wiper stuff and with a 200 lb. driver, I have to add 50-75 lbs. Brian
