I need to know for certain that the door panels for a coupe and a
convertable (E36) are the same.
My convertable had its door panels removed at some point in the past by a
previous owner, and the removal technique involved separating the glued-on
parts. I am toying with using spray glue to repair the damage, but am open
to the probability that I'll be buying another set of door panels on eBay.
I'm finding panels that fit coupes, and logic says that a coupe and a
convertable have the same doors, but I am not able to confirm my logic, that
is your mission should you choose to accept it. Do you know for certain that
coupes and convertables have the same doors?
In a related topic, my passenger door has a 3-point anchor (for lack of a
better term) for the door pull, and the panels that I'm finding have 2-point
anchors. I can't imagine that there would be a problem using a 2-point
anchor where a 3-point is provided, I simply have an unused screw hole that
will be covered by the door panel anyway. What do you think?
