what is the differnce between 55–57 chevy hardtop and 2 dr sedan door bottoms? I am trying to restore a 56 nomad which they dont make door skins or bottoms for. Every forum i have read says to use a 2 door sedan door skin and cut the top off. I also need to replace the door bottoms but all the listings I find for door bottoms are hardtop/Conv doors. Will hardtop bottoms fit nomad doors with sedan skins???? lol confusing huh?

The lower inner door bottoms for the two door hardtop will work on the two door sedans and Nomads. The access holes are in a different area. These access cut out holes are on the top of the inner door bottoms. Simply trim this area off. The length on all three are the same. Good tig welding and trimming the access holes should get you fixed up.

Use the two door sedan door skin and trim the top edge to fit your Nomad.

CARS INC carries both the door skins and inner door bottoms. Order at www.carsinc.com or call us to order at 1 800 CARS INC
