I'm actually only starting on the rear doors at the moment.
I will do the fronts later.

I know, those things are heavy buggers aren't they.

Is the some sort of procedure to be taken when adjusting the hinges?

Thanks

Well the back doors are easy cause you can get to the bolts easy.

The only proceedure i took was the try and retry method, if you could call it a method. I reckon though if you work out the latch height first and then adjust the rest to suit

I'll try that out, but It doesn't seem to help that the door hinges are probably stuffed too. oh well I guess I'll see what happens.

Do you know a good place to get reco or new hinges from?

Thanks

Pins and bushes are available from Ford Dealers....should cost no more than about $14.00 per door......not too hard to replace either..
