Have a problem with bottom front corners of the front suicide doors-both sides. This area bows out about 1/2 inch. The margins are good on balance of the doors.If the wood frame is warped can it be repaired. Any help appreciated.
Thank you,
Lance

G'day Lance(19361400S),
to PackardInfo, but sorry I can't help with your query.

Instead, while waiting for answer/s I invite you to include your '36 Packard in the Packard Vehicle Registry.

We used to install turnbuckles although those doors are rather large and may require some special rigging.

Agreeing with Tim, I've seen a few of these with door panels removed and noted diagonal steel cables or hard wire with turnbuckles. Apparently a common remedy.
