I believe so. I haven't found a need for anything larger.

t50 for the doors. i was looking for mine today but its lost and i have to get another.

On a side note, how many of you all tighten the bolts back up after putting the doors in? I tend to leave them off. I don't see a reason for them to be in the their if the door is shut and sealed.

Good time to remind people to hold onto the doors once you remove the straps...lets control the dents

X2 on holding on the door after removing straps. Always have second person helping you when you removing doors. It can be done in less than 5 mins if you have a second pair of hands.

Yes, hold the door, or at least park facing a slight incline.

I'm always home when I take the doors off and I have a heavy blanket I keep in the garage. I toss it across the cowl when I remove the doors just for peace of mind. Oh, and my Obama rape magnet comes in handy too.
