    Countach Door Work

    ;D I am collecting the stuff to get started on the doors on my 25'th. I keep getting told that this is one of the hardest things to do to this car. Thus,,,,,I am doing it now while my enthusiasm is still high. Thanks already to the folks giving advice. Here are a couple of pics of the door latches I am working on and one of the car in the garage. I know how much I enjoy seeing everyone elses projects in their "home" environments! We are in the final grips of winter here in St. Louis and maybe,,,,just maybe,,,,,we can leave the garage doors open to work,,,,,,,,,who knew such a little thing could be so important! 8)

    I've read that article before on-line. He has me making an entire frame to bond the skin to afterwards. IFG has you building a frame inside the glass door for the handle and to stiffen the door. I can see how the Euro-works method would be stronger,,,,,but also much more involved. I am still researching to find maybe something in between. 8)

    Hey LarryBud, is that a IFG kit? It does look like one but the rear wing doesn't look like the IFG one. Its not really that important how you do it as long as you tie your latch into the inner steel frame of the door. This is to avoid cracks in the fiberglass from the closing of the door. Make sure you also use steel behind the strikers. I always changed the way the door hinge connected to the door also. Instead of sandwiching it between the body and door I added to the upper leg and ran it into the door in the horizontial position. This way you can make small slots in both legs of the hinge and now you have full adjustment forward/backwards and up/down.

    Yes it is an IFG 25'th, the wings from IFG are THICK! I am looking at using some of euroworks ideas along with the tube frame idea. Anyone know if the strut plate method of bolting it like the diablo manual says,,,,,,will work on the countach also? I like the angle iron on the plate and bolting through the dash plates better than trying to get it welded onto the side. Check http://www.lambobuilder.com/manual.html to see what I mean. 8)
