    My '72 isn't in perfect rust free shape, but it's not that bad, either. Saturday my bro-in-law was riding w/ me and when he went to get out the door wouldn't open. It was hanging up on the stiker plate. Then on Sunday there was no problem. Could it be the body mount bushings (which are original and really trashed)? If so, would it be worth replacing them even though I'm a couple years away from a frame-off resto? HELP!

    Do the body mounts. It would suck to have problems with the doors till the resto. Mine are shot right now (I have the new ones sitting in my garage) and the pasenger door takes 2 people to open. At least I have no roof so climbing in and out is not a prob.

    it also depends how you park, try parking so as to make the gap on the door a little wider.

    works for me.

    With bad body mounts and some body rust was I wise in not trying the flex ramp at the local 4x4 open house recently?
