John, you have one the weakest bodies ever, your 36 Roadster, I did one once and that cowl to floor area, holy cow there isn't much support there at all. That and the weight of the doors pulling down. Just unbolt the cowl from the frame and the doors sag.

LOL yea, and that is if all the wood in that Murry body is good. If it isn't it just folds up in a little pile. Kind of like your T-shirt in the dresser drawer.
