    Door installation

    my 355 kit has an inner frame and a outer door skin which makes up the door assembly. Which way would be better to install them:
    1.) Bond the inner frame to the door then bond the outer skin to the inner skin?
    or
    2.) bond the outer skin to the inner frame and then install the door as an assembly?

    I think option 2 is how I would like to do it but figured it is easier to ask then do something over again

    here is the inner skin (2 screws are holding it on right now)


    here is the outer skin (held on with tape)

    You might consider epoxying some small bolts to the door skin then drill and attach to the door (locate the mounting points first.)

    that's unusual. The doors on most kits that I've seen were finished in one piece. Nuts were bonded into the doorskin, which is then bolted to the door through existing mounting holes.

    That is how I was planning on assembling the door, bond the outer skin to the inner and then bolt it to the door frame. so noone has seen this set up before??
