removing doors?
 
Anyone know what the law is in Cali about removing my doors? Do I need to have them on or can I take them off? what about mirrors?

Thanks

So long as you have two rear-view mirrors, it's legal in Calif. to remove your doors. There are "mirror-mover" brackets that will allow you to move your two outside mirrors to brackets that bolt to the windshield hinge bracket. www.quadratec.com sells them. :)

I am having a problem removing my doors well even so I can't get them off. Any help on how to do this. Thanks. The pins don't budge and help would be nice too!

So what have you done so far? The hinge pin nut at the bottom of the hinge pin is off right?

i had to use some wd-40 and a lot of swinging the door back and forth to get the doors off for the first time.

you need to pull the fuse that runs to the door lights i forget which one it is but it says on the backside of your glove box

Fuse #20 located behind the glove box is designed specifically to be pulled to keep the interior lights off when the doors are off. It's cool because once that fuse is pulled, you can still turn the interior lights on as usual with the dashlight dimmer control. :punk:
