New door skins

South Devon Railway Engineering have just added these pressings to their growing list of parts for the heritage rail industry.

The upper door skins are for standard Hawksworth doors and can be pressed to either hand (the hinge side is normally on the left and narrower than the lock side).
The material used is 2mm galvanised steel which allows for a full draw in each corner meaning no fabrication is needed and these are the finished article.

The lock hole is not provided in case the lock is not in the standard location.  Also the hinge notches are not present to allow for variations in the individual doors.

The first SDR coach to benefit from these new door skins is Hawksworth brake third W2180.
