I need to reassemble the 2 doors on the 80 vette.
 
What I need is a step by step instruction sheet on how to do it.  I see the one photo in the MAM catalog but an old fogey like me needs a little more info and the aim does'nt help much.   I'm getting so nearsided that braille might be an option for me.

Thanks, that helps.  I will bring the doors inside soon to work on them.  Good thing I live with just the boy and I. Don't have to hear any crabbing about stuff on the carpet.  I repaired the snowblower in the house last year.LOL

I'm with you Indy. I hope the info is available. I bought a door set at Carlisle a couple years ago and just getting around to rebuilding them. They're apart, wire brushed, free of rust & painted inside ready for assembly. A few years ago, I rebuilt the original doors, new rollers, slides, etc. and want to remove the good parts to use on the newer doors.
