Frame work for installing a doors into a fibreglass T-Bucket body

Since having a stroke I now find it hard to get into my T-Bucket with out the aid of doors and now I'm having trouble finding any plans for the sort of frame work I will need to install on the inside of the body to support the body sides as well as the right and left hand door hinges and locks into my fibreglass doorless T-bucket body. Any help from members would be great.

Please forgive any spelling mistakes since the stroke things just don't come out right on occasions.

Speedway motors sells a complete R/H door kit. I have yet to find a driver's side door kit.

T Wood

In the 70's I restored a horseless carriage Steel 23 T touring. I bought a set of plans done by Mel Miller in Oregon, His daughter is now selling them. The front half of the touring is the same If you also want a LH front opening door like australian and some canadian T's you could just flip the plans. They used tongue and groove or mortice and tennon joints. lots of band saw work. If you google Model T ford Wood plans you will link up to the Model T ford club of america (MFTCA) Web site and discussions there. In the last Glass T bucket I used an original steel T seat riser to tie the sides of the body together.
