Yes Noddy, from where I sit at the moment it looks like a great big hinge, needs a diagonal across the door opening on each side to stop the whole affair just allowing the car to fold back from the bottom of the screen pillars especially if any jacking of the car is done.

Yes that was the Stuart Ward car, the original owned by a guy I think called Lumas , something like that , his brother also had a mustard yellow rally prepared Imp, loads of Hatrwell bits on both.

Think thatr ended up at Ron's (Impspeed), so perhaps Scoobs was a triplet??? :D
