    Ok, any suggestions to add a door stop/check, so the door doesn't fly open when parked on an angle (when opening the door)?

    Piece of old seatbelt screwed into the door pillar and front inside of the door, like the ones on Scout 800's. Make it as long as you think it needs to be, cheap (probably free if you're like me and have old seatbelts laying around) and easy to replace if it breaks.

    To replace the door limiting straps on my 65 Scout, I used 2" webbing strap material from the upholstery shop. Didn't think of old seatbelts....

    My original door straps were long gone, I had some 2" nylon webbing, but no heavy duty sewing machine or buckle...

    So... I used some aluminum threaded posts like rivets (easy to find at any hardware store). Used a soldering iron to melt holes through.

    Webbing is triple layered in the middle, each one is ~18" of webbing, folded so the finished length is about 6" from eye to eye.
