Lol, yea. But when you have to buy race fuel and only have a 10 gal tank, you might have gone beyond practical use, lol. And he's putting A/C in it.
He's having fun, it's a toy.

dirtmod08 I'm back, Pop's found another manufacturer that sold him a door. He said the hinge bracket fits the same, and the body line is pretty close. He hasn't set the door in the hole yet, but it is something to work with.\
Meanwhile, he got the car started last weekend, and the body is about to go back on for fitment.

I had a similar problem on a custom built car I had. I went to Lowes and bought a couple of sheets of foam core and used that to make a correct template. It is cheap, the idea is you cut it as close as you can and install it, then look to see where you are off then change your template until you get it right. Then take the correct template to the glass shop

1 More Project I have a 34 Street Beast Coupe that I am trying to finish and could use some help, they shipped me the incorrect side windows. I have tried making templates and have a local glass shop cut them out for me, but can't seem to get them correct I've already went thru $100 worth of glass and still nothing. Was hoping someone may have a template of the correct windows I could use to duplicate them. Any help or imput would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
