Default Re: 1936 Ford 5W VS, 4D Door interchange?

Fatcoop has the dimensions correct from what I remember.
I was schooled on a 40 sedan to coupe door that was modified the same way.
The trick is to try to cut thru the external sheet metal on the outside with a 3" cutoff tool, peel the slice "up", and then trim the inner top metal(where the outside is crimped).Then the slice can be pushed back down and cut to fit to the door opening and welded.
This approach keeps the welds simple with minimal grinding.
If replacing an existing door a template can be made by aligning the window tracings on the inside top edge.
