I machined a couple end pieces and made another set of tie rods. Was still having interference issues with the frame because the straight tie rods angled up through the frame and hit about 3/4 through their radius. This gives me a level tie rod through the frame.

I scored a couple of virtually rust free, complete doors from a local shop to replace my rotted doors. I had to weld bolts to literally all but one hinge screw to get them out. Luckily, I thought to take the screws from the parts car when I took the doors..,

Nice combo - leave it like that and your 'rod looks exactly like my hazelnut and vanilla cream spread.

Ok, not exactly.   ::)

Nice score on those doors.  I'd love to see this one day, better still do a burnout in it.  Please and thank you.

Dude, for real.  I contemplated just keeping the body mounts intact and changing the door by removing the hinge pins, but as I'm sure you know, that is another kind of hell and one which requires making a special tool unless you want to spend $400.

Yep. And if the hinges aren't sagging too bad there's no point in taking the pins out.

I usually just drill the heads off of them, but I always beat on them with the impact first for some reason.
