I almost bought an early 70s Scout as my first vehicle when I turned 16. It belonged to a neighbor. I always loved the look of the truck. I am looking forward to what VW does with it regarding styling and performance/range.
And you say the other door is good now? And the bulkhead is at the same distance back from the firewall/dash/any consistent spot on both sides? If so, I am with Kim that the door needs adjusted at the hinges.
I get that the comparison is different when talking about a company stealing a design rather than a company outsourcing the labor.
My point was simply that it is hard to buy American made, even from American companies.
Swapped on a new windshield frame so had to transfer the YJ linkage to the new to me frame. It was really easy. The hardest part was the dremel. I was going to go buy a step bit, but decided to use what I had. I used the brass bit to trim the circles bigger and the thin bit to make the notches.
I opted to use latches to make removal and install much quicker. The latches are held onto the top and the windshield by rivets. You can see the latches in the pic of the top. The rear did not need the little pieces of the latch as I could just have the latch grab the lip of the bulkhead.
