Oh they are going to see mud and rocks, no salt here in Ca. That's why I am going to all this trouble. I need to be able to ride it hard and put it up wet.

This is not really what I wanted to hear, oh well. One at a time.

Nothing too difficult about building up push-button/roll-up doors - the time consuming part is functionality adjustment and fitting.

If you follow the steps in order and leave sufficient time for the paint to cure then you shouldn't have any issues.

Somewhere on my hard-drive is a time-lapse I shot on door building, and I'm getting ready to do another set of fronts for the 90 we are working on now.

About how manny hours per door does it take once you have the system down?

I'd say if you could get one completely reassembled and hung in 3-4 hours you'd be doing great ... under that and you're flying.

How many have you done Carmen? Any advice?

Series doors are a piece of cake...20mins max. I have done over 20 of those.

Took me about 4 hours to rebuild both my doors (prior to paint) with all parts on hand. Mine are roll-up anti-burst station wagon doors.

Painting took two days (mostly to dry between coats)

Hanging the doors took hours with cgalpin's help. The are heavy as all get-out once fully assembled. Having a friend (or some kind of a rope lift) is very helpful.

Ok, great info to have. I am going to be taking parts off one door and putting them onto the new ones so I won't be confused about what goes where. I am replacing all the felts and plastic bits around the windows though. Thanks for the help guys

I was making a guess. The defender and series land rover doors don't seem too complicated. Part of why I like these trucks so much. They are uniquely uncomplicated and easy on the eyes. Awkward and heavy to handle as Ed suggests. Especially after being galvanized. I left out painting and prep time, just talking about assembly and install. I was pretty close to the time frame yes?

Rear skins arrived today. Going to start prepping the galvanized frames this week. Going to try to sand as lightly as possible to smooth out the hot dip finish

HHAHAHA....yep after someone who has done it has suggested.

But hey - that is Ed. You don't know Ed, but he is the most OCD guy I have ever met. I won't go in to details on it...needless to say we mostly 1/2 his time estimates (love ya Ed!!)

Nice try Carmen.

I don't know Ed or you.. I know me though and that is how long it would take me. When I started on my first series truck restoration and you figured out I was a woman..you said you thought I (it) was crazy. Not crazy Craig. I just enjoy the same things and happen to be female. I can take the heat if you need to ridicule me... hazing? Do I need to get some doors, rebuild them and time myself for you? lol

Jayz, Great thread - Im learning a lot. I have 2 pairs of extra NAS 90 half doors (that are in need of repair) and if Jackie Treehorn's welding skills can help patching internal door frame sections, then Im off to the races.

Strangely I consider doors a consumable - 15-30yr lifespan if cared for - but at some point it becomes less expensive and time consuming to let them go and replace with new shells… Move the guts over, replace the rusted channel and start the clock again.

Didn't find the original door build video - just the sound reduction and LaSalle initial door card fitting one.

There are varying quantities of 64 line items to build a newer front door. I would hardly say it's a walk in the park....

Z, I didn't say they were easy? They can be highly frustrating and I was attempting to be supportive of Jason. I always encourage people to try...be undaunted by setback. I'll hush up ...don't want to derail this thread just cause I'm a cheerleader. Go Jason and your door building self!!

ok all done
