How are the front doors on a 1912 held on? I am assuming they are held on by screws, or do they have latches so they come off easily without stripping the screws? Thank you in advanced. Bob

I did not know a 1912 had two front doors, mine has a dummy door on the drivers side. I am assuming it is bolted in and removable as I have seen a lot of 1912's without doors.
The passenger side has door hinges mounted on with screws.

My bet would be iron oxide

You are right Willie. I was just curious if either side panels (right door and left dummy door) can be removed quickly or do they have to be screwed out. Contemporary jeep doors can easily and quickly be removed.

Robert, I guess the words "easy removal" was removed from your vocabulary thanks to Phil.
Even without the doors, the left side on a LHD T is not easy to enter due to the hand brake and steering wheel.
