    be careful, once started i got a bit obsessed with ss button head bolts on my anglia gasser and used them even where you couldn't see them.
    or is that my OCD?
    need a job done on your project? i may be able to help.

    Already there! All of the screws on the car are SS cap/head, button head or CS whether you can see them or not. I've actually got more $ in nuts & bolts than I have in the engine!

    Behind the front trim panel I've drilled larger holes so that the rivets that hold the trim to the door card won't interfere with the panel sitting flat.



    At the back of the door card, these hand-joddled brackets hook inside the door frame to keep everything neat and tight. I've allowed enough gap to wrap the trim material around the card.



    On the outside of the panel the countersunk rivets will (hopefully) not show through the rim material.



    "Trim material?" I hear you exclaim. Yes, there will be some, maybe all, material trim coverage on the door cards.

    You'll be pleased to know (I'm sure I am) that this will be the last post on the doors for a while as they are, essentially, complete.



    The original wooden window frame trims have been retained, and thinned to allow smooth operation of the door release handles. Small shaped 'escutcheon' panels cover the mechanism. These will only be fully riveted in once the door cards are 100% complete and finished.





    So there we have it. Far too many hours. Far too much material wasted. Far too much welding but at last they are ready to go back on the car.



    I still have to make a decision on colour/texture of the trims and window surrounds, but I know they won't be 'baby nappy brown'!
