        Oh man! AWESOME!!!!

        You're modifying the 4 dr posts to accept the 2 dr doors right?
        Please get good pics of how you're going about that as I figure I'll be doing the same or close to that in the future.
        All the details of 2 dr conversions need to be documented and your version looks really cost effective for someone on a budget, as it only involves the buying and shipping of the doors themselves.
        What a savings that would mean to anyone off the beaten path!

        Keep up the great work! ;):D

          Interesting. Have not seen the rear doors used for the rear panel before. Most of the conversions i have seen or read about utilize the panel section from the 2 door donor car.

          Oh man...awesome!
          It's a real jigsaw puzzle but your gonna pull it off for sure.

          I see now that you did actually use the 2 dr post sections!
          I missed that completely...wishful thinking on my part as I hoped you were doing my homework for me! Hahaha
          Still...with what your posting already my (and others) future job is sure to be easier.

          Thanks for posting all the detailed pics! :D

          My question is do they still make the 2 door rear side glass or do you have to find/use old 2 door glass and does the four door crank/lift mechanism also work from the four door???

          4 to 2

          Nice work. I have some windows off a 64 2 door post. There is a pic of the car. I also have some A-100 seats. Just check my posts at: bluepainter.

          Thanks, Bill

            Lookin' for love...

            Hey Propwash...we could be ZZ Top! ;) :headbang:


            Shes commin' along....keep at it Poly1963! ;) :D

            Do you have the 2 dr quarter window frames or will you be using cut down 4 dr ones?
            I'm wondering how they will attach to the roof and C pillar...especially the 4 dr ones as those usually seal with the door weatherstrip.

            Making plans for my own conversion!!! :D:D
