Chevrolet CMP Cab 12 Door RHS

Recommended Posts

New, unused Cab 13 passenger side door, a bit of surface rust. Back in the mid 1970s when I worked at Hughes Auto Stores in Camberwell there were several of these doors without the pattern on the inside, this may well be one of them. No hinges or door catch assembly. $100 OBO collect from Eltham 3095. Is on fb by keith webb no idea how different it is to no12 and now i think wrong side too sorry

Hi Monty2,

Thanks for your response. Sounds like a very interesting item, but I’m afraid the door would need to be altered too much in order to get it to fit the cab 12 body.

Looking for a Chevrolet CMP Cab 12 door, for the drivers side. 

Many thanks,

Josh

Hi Josh

Have a look over on, http://www.mapleleafup.net/forums/index.php several of us have basically end up building new ones by the time we finished replacing all the rust.  The doors are really pretty simple and straight forward sheet metal work.  Have some photos of sheet metal work on my Pat 12 on my website http://canadianmilitarypattern.com/SheetMetalWork.html

I happen to have my Chevy  Pat 12 drivers door off at the moment if you need any measurements?

Cheers Phil

Hi Phil,

Thanks for the links you posted, have been doing some research. Found sources for most of the catches and fittings. I should be OK for measurements because I have the passenger side door to copy.

Many thanks,

 

Josh

Hi Josh

Do you have the hinges?  My Pat 12 hinges were so bent that they were unusable, made some up when I first restored the truck as an expedient but they have worked so well they're still on the truck 10 years later and working fine.  Approached the problem from the point of view of a REME mechanic out in the desert.  Parts list, couple pieces of scrap diamond plate, four 3/8  bolts for the pins and a couple of inches of 3/8 ID pipe, weld and drill to suit.   Will dig out some detail photos an post them.

Keep us posted on your progress.

 

Cheers Phil

Hi Josh

Here are a couple of photos of the hinges that I fabricated,  the size of the bolt pin was dictated by what size tubing that would be a snug fit.

Hope it helps

Cheers Phil

Josh, they certainly are , 11/12 cab ones are just plain flat hinges
