Rear doors stay in place now

Sometimes things come accident.

This evening I had the skins laying down and had the doors taped closed. I wanted to toy with some ideas about what the door magnets should connect to in order to stay closed.

I dropped the L bracket and noticed it was firmly attached to the magnet.


So I clamped the L bracket into place, removed the tape holding the door...and sure enough, there's enough pull to hold the door snug.

Why I'll be!

So, I ran with that idea, clamped 4 L brackets into place and used some JB Weld to bond them in place. Nothing fancy is really needed...just enough to hold the door snug, yet able to be opened too.

The paper is under the clamps to prevent the paint to be damaged.
