RickD -- the repro doors seemed to fit just fine, however, I did have two issues. The first was that the quarter panel was bowed out a little and you couldn't tell until the door was hung. We had to make a cut in the quarter and "massge" the metal back down so it aligned properly. That's what my buddy is doing in the picture above.

The second issue was that the spot weld which holds the top part of the door skin to the door frame was missing. The top part of the door where you would mount a mirror could be moved back and forth fairly easily. We welded it together on the inside to fix it.

Other than that the doors look like they are going to be OK :thumbsup:
