I fabricated the post to mount the bear claw latches for both doors. Now both doors open and latch closed. I also mounted the rocker panels which on this car are a separate piece from the cowl and the rear section.
Finally got the doors bolted on to the cowl. I still need to adjust the gap with a spacer but the doors open and close. Next step is to replace the wood at the back of the doors and change the latches to bear claw.
Over the holidays I did more work on the wood replacement in the cowl. Picture 1 shows the steel replacement next to the 75 year old wood. In picture 2, I was fitting the dash to make sure I had the right width. In picture 3 my daughter and I fit the assembly into the cowl. It still needs a couple of tweaks but not bad for the first try. Next I'll have to attach them at the base to the rectangular tubing that replaced the sills.
