    I've already purchased a set of door off of a 73-75 K5 just haven't picked them up yet, and I'm going to make half doors out of Half doors. How ironic. Just wondering if they will fit in the door frame of my 83. I know most parts are interchangeable but I'm not for certain about these door lines.

    Thanks for the help in advance.

    yep, the only differenve between the 73-76 doors, and the 77-87/91 doors is the interior trim hold downs. ( and hte access holes in the doors interior)

    Sounds Good. That is a good idea to WD 40 them early.

    The doors are basically the same. The wing windows are different and also like was stated the interior mounting points. Putting newer doors on a full convert might not work to well since the newer ones have the piece around the glass the full converts don't. You can buy kits for power accessories in older vehicles and that might be the way to go for a full convert.
