  • Body: Door Check

    I got the door checks out of their zip-locks and went to install them, but the part that goes inside the door post- how does that attach to the post??

    I don't have experience with C/Ks, but if the checks are anything like my Lark, they don't "attach" to the door. The strap slides inside the door and the rubber bumper absorbs the shock of full-open. Check out my blog how-to here: http://studeblogger.blogspot.com/201...our-doors.html

      Are you talking about the "recepticle" on the A post that the strap inserts into and then a pin drops through? Those are spot welded to the A post from the inside and don't normally come out/off.

        I use a 1/4-20 stainless buttonhead to affix my door checks.

            OK, I tried epoxying them back in, didn't work- not sure how/why they were removed. Anyway door post is painted...metal is double-thick...think I can plug weld these from the inside with some kind of heat sink on the outside, and not burn the paint?
            Or try to put a small screw from the inside, grind it flush on the door post and touch up?

                The "keepers"- the part that sticks thru the door posts have been removed- there are ears on the top and bottom that were spot welded to the inside of the door post. My door post has already been painted, so i was trying to re-attcah them without burning the paint
