Hi all here is the next update (those opening doors were a nightmare) there are 2 tiny pins with corresponding holes in the inner door skins which have the hooks for the hinges in the door posts thing is if you put the doorskin in those pins the chrome trim won't align and the door droops so what I ended up doing was using liquid cement on the joins hanging the inner door then putting the outer skin up to it and using clamps to hold them in place till the glue sets.
