    How hard is it to remove and replace the doors on a first gen? I'm thinking of making some custom half doors for the summer w/ some inserts. Then putting the stock doors back on for winter driving?
    Anyone done this? how big of a PITA is it?

    I just took mine off to replace the rockers. You have to take off the fenders to get to the door hinge bolts, and to take off the fenders you have to take off the cowel. Not too tough but not fun either. You can take the fenders off without taking out the wheel wells. I haven't hung the doors yot but im sure that will be a real pain to get them to line up perfect. You can mark the hinges where they connect to the A pillar so hanging them shouldn't be much of a problem, but mine weren't hung straight in the first place so i didn't bother.

    I need to go look at mine but aren't there bolts on both the door and the pillar? Also couldn't I just fashion some pins and break the hinges at the pin?

    Dude just make your pins removable like a lot of guys are doing. That's what I plan. That way I can get another set of outer hinges and mount my tube doors permanently to them. Easy on and off with both sets, already shimmed up to fit.

    Yeah, there are bolts on the door too. I wasn't thinking. There are three per hinge, should be real easy to take the doors off. I like the removable pin idea too.
