Default Mounting Fiberglass Doors on a Race Car

I see lots of folks selling replacement fiberglass doors for Camaro's. They are all blanks. How do you mount/install the doors and what do I use for a door latch system?

Hairy Glass in Jacksonville, Florida is a real class act. Sun Coast is also good.

There are also others, but beware, there are some troubled Manufacturers out there. Check the scamers log before buying from them.

I like the Glasstek stuff. Top quality stuff and they're easy to deal with.
http://glasstek.com/
There are a couple of others that make good stuff but like Dave said there is some junk out there too. Check the scammers section or if you find something else you're considering post here before ordering. I know the 2 that seem to have the worst reputation here are unlimited fiberglass and bruis glassworks. I personally have used the unlimited stuff and never would again and I have seen a lot of complaints on the bruis stuff in the scammer section.
