Lower Door Post Inspection

Post by 6468 » Wed Jun 24, 2020 11:10 am

Is it possible to spot a lower door post crack with the lower V strut bolted in place? If I understand correctly, where I need to look is on the edge of the middle plate and the lower strut would be in the way. So am I looking in the right spot? And what's the best way to check for the crack, If someone could post a photo of what a lower door post looks like it would be very helpful.
Thanks, Jim

Thanks, just what I needed. Glad I didn't have to pull out the lift strut to spot the crack. Great pictures!
