Once I had a bloke employed , after working hours he went to work for his own account , At the job( with me) he did not work so hard, because as he said, he needed the energy for working late , and I could afford it, because I" made a lot of money " :mrgreen:

This is what may happen if you think you've shut the suicide door but in fact haven't. Only driving at 25 mph when the air brake came on :lol: .
I have a door from 2cv 6, wonder if the glass is the same?

You were lucky not to grab it, they aren't called suicide doors for no reason. They pull you out.
And yes the glass is the same. I had my door blown open too, lucky i had only a little dent in the door and the rear wing. Always check the door latch is extended completly with the door closed. Good luck.

For illustrative purposes only, Jeff's not getting any help from me: I'll make something, probably not hand forged though.

Hope the body and door are not too much damaged .
Sorry for the window, but that can be replaced.

Just got to work out the best way to straighten all that out without ruining the paint :roll: .

Pete, carefully picking out all the glass remnants.
We were lucky because all the screws on both doors released easily, that's some kind of miracle :D .
