1955 Cruiser entry door help!

So here's the situation, this is clearly not the door... but the rivet pattern on the door makes me think the frame is under there. Has anyone re built one of these doors? I think this was originally one of the door in a door design. I'd rather build it myself and buy the correct hinges unless there's a good place to buy a replacement door. Thanks for reading!

why not pull the inner skin and see what you have? I thought the 50's trailer's had the door in a door style entry door.

I built one last year. I have to say it took more hours than I origionally thought. you can see the process on pinterest

this was on a 53 clipper.

if you have the original frame underneath then you should be fine otherwise building the top frame is tricky being a compound curve..


good luck with your project...
