I figured I would ask, does anyone have those door support braces to use during heater channel replacement on vert bug. They bolt into hinge spots. If anyone does, I would love to borrow, rent, buy them.

Ive only used angle iron. Down side is that it needs to spotted to the inner structure and will ruin the original inside paint. An alternative is to mount them to the structure ( somehow) to a location that will eventually be covered with the headliner or carpet.
