removing doors

the next mod i plan on making on my zook is the removal of the doors (mainly cause its free)... i just get hervous however when i go to cutting something on my samurai that cannot be easily replaced... i do not want this to be a trial and error sort of job, so i was wondering if any of you had any pictures that i could go by... ive looked at all the instructions on izook and off-road.com, but they still make me uneasy... i would really like some pictures of the finished hinge with the door off, and with it reattached... do any of you have pictures like this? i would surely appreciate it

thanks

Re: removing doors

Go to IZOOK.COM there is a technical artical there with photographs. You need to buy or borrow a Dremel tool and a phillips head impact screw remover. the screws are glued into place....

Re: removing doors

Sory i did not read your post. Youv'e already been to Izook. I'm sure there are many photos out there to view. I'll even add mine tomorrow for you. It is not a difficult job with the tools I mentioned.

Re: removing doors

hi steve,i just did my doors on my 88.a dremel tool is a must have.you will need a tube of cut off wheels,safety glasses for when the wheels get caught, they come apart.cut the top hinge on both hinges straight down.cut the post off that is now exposed.i bevelled my new top hinge so that it clears the body when i opened it and lift up.if you like i will have my sami back next week,call me and i will talk you thru the process of the first hinge.the rest will be the same.use private email for my number if you like.ranger rick

Re: removing doors

it can be done without removing the hinges, that way you wont mess up the screw head or have to disturb the position of the hinge

Re: removing doors

These are some photos of my Zuk hinges as I altered them to work with no doors. Hope this works, good luck, just go slow and get the right tools.
