Hi Everyone

Thanks a lot for this Nigel, very useful.

Had to get mine done the other day: I just held the door as high as I could while the welding was done, it doesn't take very long.

The hardest part is getting the gap right between the front and rear doors and
a wooden wedge leaves your hands free to do this, if your way worked out for you thats great,
