I popped the glass into the rear doors, then assembled the random collection of hinge parts to make three pairs. Not ideal, but enough to for a trial fit of the doors to see how they look. It doesn't actually help the project, but seeing big bits fitted does give you the impression that you are getting somewhere !
I doubt that the cable tie will make a very good substitute hinge part.
So a spare 'door' half has volunteered to sacrifice itself in the name of mechanical science...
Two cuts with the hacksaw
Then sit the bits together.
Apply the MIG for 60 seconds, then allow to cool.
And chuck it on the van.
Just need to replace the cable ties with a more permanent pivot.
Then the front doors...
