Fitting Newer Doors
I am sure some of you guys have done this and may can help with some of the issues -- used to enjoy figuring it out but now I can use all the help I can get, guess that come with age. I want to fit 83 GW front doors to my 72 J2000 (like the chrome surrounds, PW, PDL, speakers, door panels, PM, & they are much more solid than my 72 ones). The hinges seem pretty straight forward and the dimensions appear the same; however, the latches are different. Looks as if maybe the door latch mechanisms in the doors may enterchange by relocating a counter-sunk screw or two (don't have the same bolt pattern). Or, is there a way to change out the striker pieces in the door jambs (again different bolt patterns??)??
Will try to get some pics on here now that the old camera is returned.
