2012 doors on a 1995 Defender?

Is there any reason a set of 2012 doors wouldn't fit a 1995 NAS Defender?

I have a set of pressed steel doors on mine ... not sure they are 2012 but are definitely a later model.

It's quite impressive how LR has not changed them since the 1950's...

I have Defender doors on my Series.

There were several issues getting the body lines correct with the new doors.

Meaning its not a proper fit or that they are just difficult to align?

They fit properly. It is sometimes time consuming to align them. I wouldn't say it's difficult.

Not sure, fit perfectly but the doors protruded from the tub/roof sides.

That doesn't sound like a perfect fit to me. What do you mean protruded? Did you need to move the striker inward toward the body?

This was on frame off restoration, so lots of alignment needed to be done on both the door catch and the body itself.

My point is that you were able to get everything adjusted in the end, right?

The door catch on the ST is different than the SW.

Because it is not a push button door?

I am also running a gutter kit and full door seals as well.
