300 door panels on an intrepid

I have read the forum that tells you how to fix the rear doors to fit. My question is, I have to cut the rod that opens the door. How should I cut/bend the rod. Is there an easier way than other ways to do this. Also any advice on doing this project would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I'm pretty darn sure there's no reason to cut the rod. The how tos on the forum are about the best advice out there. I've got to do this same job heh.

Yes they need to be cut, they're too long as-is. I used a bit of heat and some pliars to bend and cut the rod.

I marked the new bend point in the rod and then put it in a vice to get a nice 90 degree bend, but precision isn't all that necesary. It's easy enough to do with pliers.

Couldn't you pull a couple of rods from a 300 at the yard?
Wouldn't they work correctly?

I'm not sure if they would, as far as I know it's never been tried. I wouldn't be surprised if they did.

Much easier just bending the rod.

Removing them from inside the door on a used car turns out to be a challenge.

I had rear 300m door rods in the Intrepid. My fronts were just bent and shaped to match.

It's pretty straight forward, cut that hard plastic bit off the rear facing side of the door panel, peal back the leather on the 300 door panel, carefully. match up the intrepid peice with the 300, mark and cut. Then using a solder iron, you fuse the plastics together.

I suggest keeping strips of plastic around that you can melt like goop to fill any holes, and create more surface.

Really, it's more of a craft than a procedure. You will have screw ups, and frankly I never seen a set that looked 100% factory.
