The drivers door does show on the mimic and also triggers...

    Room for crossovers in a T6.1 door?

    Just wondering if anyone has fitted crossovers into a T6.1 door card? Hardly any flat surfaces to mount on (not to mention the sound deadening), so I cant see where there is room?

    Pad on inside of passanger/drivers door.

    There is a small pad that i think is there to prevent the door catching the bodywork when you close it. These pads are knackered and my doors have been catching the paintwork. Does anyobe know where i can buy these pads or is it just something i could purchase at a hardware store ?
