Hi All,
Does anyone know how much longer the 2-door doors are than the standard Pick-up/4-door versions?
Need to confirm measurements.

Reminds me of those Scammel three wheelers they used to run in the sixties -British Rail had some I think ?

This one reminds me of an Austin Cab ?

Hello Martin.
Just re read your OP and I think you want the difference in measurement (width) between the 2 and 4 doors ? ie a bigger space for entry into the front seats ?

If that is the case and I've got it right this time-it's nearly 4 inches.(front to back measurement)

The exact measurement is on a Plan of a 4 Door which also shows the 2 door measurements in dotted lines superimposed overe the plan- so you can work it out to exact scale for yourself.

I was going to impress you by the formula I got from Declan to convert it-but I can't find the D@mn plan on one of the Threads  (plonker Lloyd strikes again  :oops: )

Hope thats helpful

Regards
Cliff

Found it Martin- hope its useful

Minor plan scale is 1;10
so 1 inch is 25.4m I think that's it-but you can clearly see the bold 4 door lines and faiter (dotted) lines 2 door

If you get rid of the 1/4 light I assume you'll be happy not opening your window. To make it all one piece, which I'm assuming you're thinking about,  would not allow the window to drop down due to the wheel arch shape in the door, let alone any door handle mechanism.  Some have found this problem in the front when trying to fix door speakers, too many hidden problems...

Windows not dropping is fine, rather unsociably, the rear seats have been removed to fit mine and the wifes bikes in, which have to go in though the front doors, oddly.
So i was thinking of welding a bar underneath the window to hold it up if the original window mechanism isn't strong enough.
You mention the door handle... would fitting the longer window stop this from working?

If you're looking at having a fixed window them it wouldn't effect the handle mechanism, I guess.

Getting back to your original question, I can't help you, but I'd be surprised if the window would fit your purpose. You might need to get one cut to size.

Not sure of the length of the 2dr rear window, but do know that the 2dr rear window is different curve to the convertible rear window!
