LWB doors on a SWB?

Postby samk115 » Sat Apr 04, 2015 5:58 pm

Does anyone know if a LWB drivers door will fit a SWB?

My poor old girl may have spent a bit of time lying on her side today...................

bad luck
If it had been the tail gate doors and you had suffered an over enthusiastic wheel stand you would have been ok
Of course if it only might of been on its side your door might be ok

The evidence would suggest it did in fact fall over!

I have sorted out the dents today, nothing major as it was just a tumble into a bank. The door we have managed to tweak back into shape. It looks fine visibly but the window was not going up straight. All sorted now!

It would still be handy to know if a LWB door will fit as I may buy the blue one I have located as a spare
