    Let's see 'em. Also, any tips for doing it? My hinges are shot anyways and the pillar where they bolt on is rusted at the bottom. So, I figure I'd just do it. Why not?

    If you can find a 4 door to hack up, take the b-pillars and corresponding rear door jambs, flip them to the opposite sides of the car and weld it all in. I had the pieces to do this a few years back, but when I decided I wasn't going to do it, I gave them away. I might be able to get them back for you if you decide to go this route. I highly doubt that the guy I gave them to did anything with them.

    Anyone? Yeah, Randy. I gave the '51 that a guy named Mark from the Detroit area put together. It has some issues but it runs great!

    Yep. When I got it it had some horrendous flames on it. They're gone now. I also 86'd the Chevy grille. It sucked. Been drivin the wheels off it for a while now. Jenny drove it to work today. Gotta give her a chance to abuse it too!

    my fordor has sewer-side doors but this probably isn't what you are looking for.
