Chris Vallone: Hey, guys, Chris again from classicvwbugs.com. Another tip for you, I got today is -- I will talk about sagging doors. If you are going to get a bug or you are restoring a bug, you want to be careful that when your door is closed, they don't hit the bottom heater channel here, or the rocker, or they don't hit the door frame in anywhere as it's closing. It should close nice and smooth.
One thing to look out for is when -- the big culprit for it most of the time is the corner down where the door post meets the heater channel. If it's soft there or it wasn't welded correctly, then that's usually your culprit, that's usually the reason why you have a sagging door.
Most of the time, you have rust there. If you are buying a bug and some guy says, oh, the doors sag a bit, you could pick the door up by hand and from there you get to check the corner. And if you see that it's coming apart or it's soft and you hear cracking, then you know that that corner area there down by the door post is soft.
If the car was restored and you are buying it from somebody and the door is closed and even if -- you can try just the hinges, where the screws are in the corner over here, but even that if it's still hit -- that means if the guy put a new heater channels or floor panes or what not, and he didn't do good welding job and then all of a sudden, now you have to re-cut that door post out and then try to re-weld it or what not, but if you do that then all of a sudden the paint is going to come off and it's got to be retouched up again.
So keep an eye off for that stuff. I will show you the corners right now, and as you could see right here, that's where you have to point out to -- you have to take a look at just to see if you got any weak areas, the door post areas right here in the frame. That would be one of the main reasons for your door sagging. Again you could also check, like I said the screws that hold the hinges in place but most of the time it is that door post.
So, Okay, just to throw out there, just keep an eye for you Chris@classicvwbugs.com, if you have any questions. Okay take care.
