    LOL. Yep. That's about it. After all, SII's are just cars...

    Inserts!

    Hey folks, now I see! It just seemed so natural for those inserts to fit in the door channel! Since I've only briefly seen an SSII about 15 years ago, I had no idea. A pictures worth a thousand! Especially a detailed picture.
    I did know that the trim was coming off since the I had already removed the rear chrome.
    Now that we have the outside a little more clear, I would like to know if anyone has had to notch the inside back for the step, of course I know the fit will become more clear, with the outside where it should be so that the inside can match to it, it just seems like a lot of strange trimming or shaping on the inside, upper dash corner.
    I will go down to the shed with a new perspective and see what comes of this. keep you posted.
    Thanks to all for your patience and help, adios, Corey

    Corey,
    Hooper's got it covered with the pics! No need to send mine. I also didn't have to notch my
    inner insert. It's tight, but it fits. Another
    suggestion. Set the outside door filler where you want it, assemble it with the inside door filler before you put holes in the body. Then, drill your mounting holes. Also, I mentioned before about getting someone to hold the door where you want it before drilling holes for mounting hardware: Get the door hung and latch hardware attatched before you drill the holes for the snaps that hold the front of the door canvas to the outer insert (wow, got that out in one sentence!).
    Otherwise, (I know this from first hand experience) if you make a mistake, time to fill and re-drill! Ha-Ha! Good luck!

    Snaps

    Another piec of interesting trivia

    The door skins I bought last year did not exten as far forward as the original skins. The snaps for the new skins would not come even close to reaching the original snaps. So, I made an extension, that snapped into the new door snaps, and into the old snaps on the inserst, to bridge the gap. Worked well, and you cannot even tell. But, for some reason, the new door skins do not extend as far forward as the old doors skins did.

    I would post up a picture, but I so rarely have the doors on when I am wheeling, I can't find any that show the bridge pc...

    Hooper,
    The fronts of my door skins were so bad,
    I had a piece of vinyl added to them with new snaps that would reach!

    Vinyl

    That is exactly what I did. Forgot to take a picture last night though.

    Yeah,
    After I wrote that, I realized that's what
    Hooper just said! Duhhh! I did have mine stitched in, though. Otherwise, I WOULD have lost them somewhere. The last snap on the rear corners of my top are the same way. Just short enough to where they won't reach! I may add an extension to those this year.

    Tops

    I need a new top. Everytime I put mine on, it tears, even if I do not pull tight. That 25 year old canvas has had it... it tears, and not even on seams, It will just split right in the middle.

    Wife does not think too much of the duct tape look... I told her it matches the dents..

    My BIL has a used top, I might grab it from him...

    I'd grab it if you can, the new ones are getting pretty pricey! I think they're somewhere around $475 for just the top!
