Someone tried to open the door with an axe, not recommended.
In order to get access, I removed the inner panel.
Using a good door as a donor, I got myself a repair panel.
A little mud and some primer and we got ourselves a snazzy new door. I spent a lot of time to make sure the door fit the body. Feels good to knock off another item on the list.
Next: headlights. I am guessing these are from a truck. They have a Ford script so the must be good, right?
They cleaned up good.
In order to prevent any binding in the spring, I made sure it has the same angle as the cross member. This will determine the location of the rear radius rods.
Turns out all roads leads to where the transmission cross member will be. By “roads” I mean the rear rods and the front split wishbones. Since that is the case, I will make the cross member the central mounting point for all rods.
The rear rods will be connected in one central swivel point just like Ford designed it.
Now if you excuse me, I am going for a ride on the cafe racer. More later…
