Fabiens sent me a bunch of how to pictures and a video of the end product and it actually looks good. I have square door corners as well and I could use those because they are in much better condition than my ruins corner ones. I will have to stew on this problem for awhile.Hey Ralph I think you are pooched on the tube, looks like they designed it to have the doors fit over the tub and not recessed like factory. I do not see a recess for the doors in any of the pictures, on top of that they are using square cornered rear doors when factory doors curved bottom outside...
Maybe they coud build in the recess and make the curve on the corners to fit your rear doors, could be pricey to do all that fab work?
Yes the wheel opening is larger to easily fit a 33” tire or even a 35” I suppose. I learned this the hard way after I powder coated my jump seats and tried to install them. I found that the rear seat stanchions poked above the hardtop rail, so I lowered them, re welded the stanchions and then powder coated them again.Is the wheel opening larger than in OEM quarter panel? Now it’s at the same level with the fuel door lower line.
Edit: Teseven: ”it is just around 4cm to allow larger tyre to fit into.”
Hi Mike, Fabien set me a boat load of pictures some of which I included on this thread. He said that he has only built the tubs with the seal recess within the last 9 months and mine was built before that. The door closes over the edge and he seal makes up the difference. I tied to post the video he sent but you can’t tell st all once the doors are on. Fit and finish is perfect. I’m Not worried, and if I ever am I will insert a length of stainless angle, the only problem I have at the moment is that I’m worried that I will weaken the sheet metal fender where it wraps around the door opening. I’m due for another meeting with the painter so we will discuss it further.Hi, How was this resolved with Tsevens ? Mike
Alberta Mac I won’t get her done this summer that much I know. I’ll be happy to have her painted by the end of summer and then to settle in for the winter to wire it and put the glass back, seats, tires, trim, etc. All the fun stuff. I thought about soft doors but these half doors I have will look sweet once I spend a bunch of hours on themWhy not not soft doors ?
I just took my bj42 to 4Wheelauto Edmonton yesterday.
Very excited to be possibly driving her soon !
Don’t miss the summer get it on the road to enjoy ! Then do the piddly things later !
