I have a video of the doors closing, but can't post here due to file size, I'll email it to you.

Tony, Thanks for the pix, video and offer. I have the military strikers but will have to shim them a bit for the rear doors. PIA but once they line up, they close really nice.

I also noticed that the lower latch interferes with the Koch seat belt retractor. Very strange. I will have to look at that more closely to see what needs to be be modified.

Got side tracked by my dad's 42 GPW. Quite a difference!

Yes.
Internal glass that slides back and forth. Allows about 6" opening! About half the weight of F5.
Ragman has a set for sale.

Summer time means slow hmmwv time.

As a joke, I ordered the REV horn bracket extension in December. I received it in the middle of May! Impressive lead time for a $15 part. As stated before, the ability to build these is very much hampered by lead times. I am thankful that I am done ordering parts! Many are not in the TM!

Mounted mirrors on Frag 1 doors. You need the long L bracket on the lower position passenger side and the standard L bracket on the upper position. Same with drivers side. Took a long time to figure that out. Anyway, you still can't see crap behind you.

Thanks.

Page 6 shows the reinforcement plates. I do not have dimensions handy but you should be able to scale them based upon the location. 3 per side.
