    You wrote the driver's side went in without a cinch; does it bounce at the top of its travel? I just watched the video at the beginning of this thread and the door seemed to bounce quite a bit. I plan on being a wuss and torqueing the replacement bars as weakly as possible that will still open the doors at least halfway, if I have to use some arm strength to open the doors fully so be it.
    Mine seems to open perfect with very little bounce. I could tweek it to be firmer or softer but I'm not going to.

    The proceedure that was posted on here where you barely touch the glass with the bracket worked perfect for me on the driver side.

    As soon as I repair my passenger side torsion unit I will use the exact same procedure to install it.

    Here are some pictures of my bars. My passenger side bar looks a bit better than Steve's.

    I finally got around to visiting my favorite welder today. My torsion unit is now nice and square.

    In other news, I have a sad announcement. Our favorite DeLorean parts vendor has passed away. His car is currently for sale.

    I am sorry to hear this news. Thanks for letting us know. Byrne was a good man who knew a lot about these cars and sold quality products. He will be missed.
