The one pin is slightly longer than the other. Trick is to get them to slide in at the same time(which is gonna take getting the one started while the other is dangling praying that gravity takes it the opposite way). Once ya stop caring about scratches and shit, it gets much easier Wink .

Scratches, dings, rust spots underneath...you name it. If you start wheeling it eventually, the significance of these issues will diminish. I have a rule of thumb, as long as it looks good from ten feet away, I'm happy. I'm lucky (or unlucky depending on the point of view) that mine's black, a can of black Rustoleum generally helps it looking decent for touch up areas.

Not for nothing, but could all you guys with the 5 wrenches move on to a more tech related question like my gas mileage one. I mean, this lady sounds like she's just pulling your chains now after the bumper spill. Sorry just seemed like this was becoming a waste of time and the f*n gas prices have run me up about $40 a week here in socal.

Dang,

Never knew so many people had trouble putting doors back on. I'm no mechanica by eany means but it's just two pins that you slide into holes. Line it up and slide it in. I have full doors, I roll down the window and reach one arm through and grab the bottom of the door. Use my other hand to tilt the door as needed to get them lined up and press down. Easy.
