    Just bought a Kelly bonanza top. Does anyone have any pics of the doors specifically. I’d like to see how they should sit once mounted

    I've got one on mine. Technically, mine's a Kelly "Custom 300". Basically a Bonanza minus the wood trim. If you need specific closeups, let me know:

    A few close ups around the doors would be great. I’m having a hell of a time trying to get my doors to fit

    Here's a bunch of pictures. Like Glenn said, what's not fitting?

    Do you have the filler panels that go on both sides of the windshield? A lot of times when tops change hands, the fillers are neglected. If you're missing them, another member had some in the classified section and probably still has them: For Sale - Hard Top Windshield Fillers

    You can see the fillers in the pictures below.

    Thanks for the pics appreciate it. Overall the door seems to go in place. The bottom front section seems to be sticking out not allowing the hinge to sit flush on the body and mounted. I do have the fillers i in place. Best pic I have on my phone right now of the issue but I can get more.

    Good pictures Fireball! Take note of the fact that there is a left and right hinge set. Maybe you have them backwards? I can't tell from the picture of yours. Wrong way would make the door stick out like yours does.
