C-Cab Delivery Van has rear doors

The doors on the vans I’ve built in the past have been problematic.
I like the flush finish doors but the hinging hasn’t been acceptable, so a new approach.
I saw on some of the commercial vans the door hinges are mounted on the outside of the door.

I first added the rear bumper bar and a top hinge plate. I’ve used 1/4” Tassie Oak dowels glued into the doors and free moving in the top and bottom.

So here goes!

I still new to clean it all up plus add windows, taillights and number plate; but for the most it’s done.

Hmm. A new approach to the hinges? Looks like they work, plus Handy gets to play Hide & Seek.

Moving right along Peter, neat idea for the rear doors. It looks like it was to be like that.
