So I can be clear on this, the doors could be held by say, hood pins, as long as the hinges were there in the original location?

Stock door hinges must be retained and mounted in their stock location. Door hinges must be functional but can be lightened. Doors must be securely fastened closed, provided they can be opened or removed quickly in an emergency situation.


Held closed yes. Held on no. If the hinges are in the stock location and functional, then they are holding one side of the door in place. No problem with a hood pin at the rear of the door holding it shut.

FWIW, on my FP MGB I am using the stock hinges on the front of the door, and the door is pinned in place at the pack using a hood pin. Can email a picture this weekend if that would be helpful. My door panels have not (yet) been lightened.

I used an aero catch on my passenger door.

Send me an email to blamkin86 - Hotmail and I’ll be happy to send pix as well. Only opens from the outside which is perfect for passenger doors and all chop tops.

PS: Still planning to lighten the doors at some point by cutting out the inner skin, leaving some sort of "border" (1 to 2 inches). But my door bars on the drivers side fit completely inside the interior side of the plane of the door, so no need for me to "hollow" out the door.
