Open Out Folding Door Hardware

I am looking for the parts to install the manual door opener in my 2003 BB TC 2000 FE.

If you know of any please let me know.

Finding a parts bus with the manual door is your best bet.
Way too expensive to go to the bb stealer to get all of the requisite parts and hardware to convert yours.

Not sure if/how it might affect you, but bear in mind the added linkage rods and mount(s) will eat into your space up front to some degree...

Thx, I'm not concerned about the space it might take up. 10/4 on the Dealer pricing. The air operated one is giving me so much trouble i want it out.

I just heard an add on the radio for a bus demo-derby at the annual fall fair next town away. Your situation popped into my head from out of the blue!

Maybe if you have a "local" bus demo derby and a similar year/manufacturer is in the show, you could snag the door hardware for cheap $$ after the bus has run or died?
