I would like a mobile version of the FMBC site, even if it meant losing ALL data and starting over.

Yes, it is uber important.

No, leave it as is please.

I am on the fence.

I have a fairly good set of 1978 doors that are available. Painted poorly, but solid.

I have 2 "Westys", same year, same color scheme, 1 full camper and a weekender.
I am selling the weekender for $6000

or use as downpayment on a VWsynchro-camper (4x4).

I originally bought the weekender for parts for my camper, but then it kept running so well after i gave it new cylinder heads, new steering fluid pump, shocks.....

I am having the same problem with both my 85 and my 74. After replacing the front doors and painting, each has a door that is slightly too far back. The adjustments at the bolts are in/out and up/down. There does not seem to be any fore/aft adjustment. Is there any way to adjust this short of bending the hinge mounts on the body?

try pushing the door outwards at the hinge, it'll bring it forward a tad.

I had the same problem on my 73, 10# sledge hammer did the trick! If you have nice paint wrap a towel around a piece of 2x4 to smack. Mine had been wrecked and had to take it forward about an inch. Go slow, easier to knock it forward than back!
