Unfortunately the pulling and pushing cracked the body at the rear near where the roof bolts on.

I must thank Jonny Jimbo for giving me the idea which I then modified for the bits of steel I had lying around.

Hah..... give an engineer a challenge.....!  I like it very much, but I doubt I could be bothered to make one!

One question though, what dimensions are you setting them to and how are you measuring them?

Doors true to the body with the eye-o-meter.
Car body is nearly 50 years old so I reckon thats the best way otherwise I will be trying to set it to unobtanium measurements.
If it looks good it is good
