    wanted 355 door shells

    I am looking for a set of outer door skins. If you recall from another thread, my doors are actually 2 pieices, an inner and outter door skin. Well, the outer skin has about a 5/8 bow in the center and I know most people just leave the bow as is but it really bugged me. After trying to remove the bow with heat for over 2-1/2 hours all I have accomplished is making the bow approx. an 1/2 inch.

    I would prefer a door that is straight and does not the rocker attached but will also concider a door with the rockers attached.

    Please let me know if you or anyone you know has a set for sale so I can get beyond this and hopefully get this thing finished sometime this year!! You can either post here or email me directly.

    Thanks,

    Glenn:

    Send me the dimensions of the door. Sometimes you can make another kit door fit if the center "V" is the same length and distance down from the line along the window.

    By the way, a 355 door has a little bow in it on the rounded part at the top, the scoop however is straight. You could bond your doors together and glass in a 1/2 inch square tube along the inside of the "V" groove. I did that to my 1st generation Mirage kit. You will need to put the bar inside then brace the ends to hold the fiberglass against the tubing, then glass it all together. It works fine.

    Dave,
    I will measure them tonight when I get home. Do you think Air Dynamics doors will fit properly?

    I will measure them for you and we will compare notes to see if it is possible to accomplish.

    Glenn:

    The doors are right on the money. Straight as an arrow.

    John's number is 706-971-4676

    Tell him I sent you. He is one of the good guys in the business. He makes both the separate rocker and the built in rocker door. You want the separate rocker model. Here is a shot of a door, primer only, no Bondo.

    Dave,
    Nice Door!! I talked with John yesterday and he quoted me a price for the doors, rockers and the filler strip for the rockers. The cost is more that I have to spend at the moment so I am going to attempt one more time to starighten my doors like you suggested. I will let you know how I make out!!
