    New door strut mounts and reinforcement brackets installed. They'll be hidden once I put the upper door finishers back in. I got these from Delorean Club UK. They are made by a member there and most of the money goes to a charity of your choice. Pretty cool

    I have a set from delorean.eu, but I think I like those better. I haven't yet installed mine....maybe I'll make a change in plans.

    A surprisingly big job that many cars need whether the owners want to admit it or not.

    Great work!

    When I did this job, I also glued them to the fiberglass with (fiberglass) epoxy resin.

    Thanks guys ! They were way more of a pain in the ass to install then expected but I figured why not while I had everything apart. My fiberglass was in good shape but my drivers side origional was slightly bent and I figured it's only a matter of time untill they break. Seems like one of those things the factory would have changed if they had not gone out of business as the stock bracket seems ridiculously small.

    Minor progress but progress this week none the less. Picked up a brand new DMC radiator and cooling system hose kit from StainlessBullet. Got the passenger roof seal installed.

    Busy couple of days. New upper finishers and door strut balls installed and sealed. New (used) drivers door built and installed. The T-panel is just resting there right now. Waiting on some screws to show up for passenger fender and t-panel. Also a bunch of fine tuning that needs to be done but the torsion bars are properly adjusted and with a set of new grady struts watching them both come up evenly and close is a thing of dreams. 5 total days of work in roof box and door repair.

    What's your plan for the new door missing the stripe? Will you remove them everywhere else on the car?

    The stripes in rough shape. My plan is to get a nos grey stripe kit from grady. As far as the rub strips I have them just haven't put them on yet.
