You do know the doors are slightly different from early to late? The difference is on the inner skin.
I did wonder Ron, but thanks for the confirmation.
That's saved me about £200 then!

Slightly confused as to why Wallothnesch advertise doors as for all years, no variations... 🤔

Ron, I've hunted high and low for gen 1 doors but it doesn't seem there's many decent ones around.
Have a look at this picture though, am I right in thinking it already has Gen 2 doors?

Would you believe I've had to put it back together because I'm moving house? :roll:

Wow, that's ridiculous.
I'm grateful that my car appears to have escape most of the rust worm maladies.
