Anybody know the length of a 37/38 chev tudor door. If I'm gonna lengthen mine I might as well make it look sort of factory.... Cheers

Or you could deliberately make them different and have a lot of guys scratching their heads wondering...that would appeal to me

Another suggestion if you fail to get a response,if you have a photogragh,measure for instance a front guard,take the measurement of your actual guard,make a scale.Then measure the door on the photo,using the same scale you should be able to come up with the door length...................Frank.

Lucky BASTARD....Thanks, Around 8" should be ok then..... won't be for a couple of months due to house extensions, If anyone finds some tudor door you know where I am
Our Xmas big trip south was agreed on if the extensions were going to be finished when we return (I've been doin them for 15mths)icon_cry.gif icon_cry.gif after all if the minister of war n finance isn't happy then the little boy can no longer play

P.S. Anyone got good/bad info on pop out side/rear windows, as this would be easy yet still get airflow to the rear... just finkin

Yeah my prado has these I figure just goto the local toyo wreckers and ask for the hinges but you may have to setup padding for them. I'll have a look when I get home.
