    Couple of questions, that I hope havent been asked too much...

    1) Saggy doors. All of mine sag a bit, but the driver side door is pretty bad. New door hinges are a bit pricey, is there a way to tighten them up or anything?

    2) Heat from the floor. It melted part of the womans purse, and she got a little pissed (guess "louie" means its good?). I was originally thinking about doing a spray in bed liner for the entire floor... now I am not so sure that is the best of ideas, unless I can figure out another way to combat that heat.

    doors: hinge bushings from help section at local auto parts store

    floors: obviously insulation of some sort. do you currently have bare metal floors? bedliner would help some, but not sure of its insulating properties. easy fix, don't put purse on floor :whistle:

    Hah, I told her the same thing. It has carpet in there, but there is a hole in it on the passenger side, so a little patch of bare metal. I didnt know if this was a common problem, but I guess its one I will have to deal with if I go the bedliner route (figure I cant be the first to go this way...)

    He could put a heat sheild above the problem under the body, right? Like the stock ones above mufflers?
