Lookin' good!
The body shop guy has seen it and says the chassis is straight and I've ebayed the parts and they are not too bad for cost. Just need a good price for the labour and paint.

I am not running nay brackets. I welded a bolt to the top after cutting the nipple off, then screw in the AH2. The bottom sits freely and I notched the bottom cup for the fitting is all. The car can go lower in the rear but not with these wheels/tires stopping it. :P

It's in better shape than mine, and the window tracks are good.

Meh, I'd rather spend the time to swap the window stuff than drive a month with a mismatched door. But that's just me.

Normally I would too, but working 60 hour weeks and having a newborn doesn't allow much time for that.
