No, like the Inch Pincer I, there were (and still are!) two sets of doors for both cars; one pair steel and the others fiberglass. The reason being, both cars ran AHRA and NHRA, with different class weight breaks, so they changed parts to fit into these classes better. Someday, these door will surface.

good one Russell  Grin


and fabs the doors were not replaced after that crash as the logo is still the straight one on the pic before and after the repairs.
