firstly toddle off to supercheap........

buy a $3.95 battery hold down bracket

you need to make sure it has a thin rod and metric/small thread

you'll also need a 10mm nut , and a 12mm nut ( a welder is also handy)

Image

ok , now you can see the 10mm nut has been ground down , use a grinder , or a bench grinder for the task (make sure you keep it rounded)
It should be the same size as the pin for maximum effectiveness

Now weld on the 12mm nut down towards the bottom of the rod (as per pic) if you dont have a welder , stop into a welding shop and ask them if they can quickly throw a weld on it , shouldnt cost you anything for them to do it

and if you had the original pin removing tool you can still use the steel bar used to hold the original pin while you belted it with a knockometer (hammer) If you dont have this tool , get a 12mm metal rod with a 7mm hole drilled in the end to go on the pin remover.

im on my 2nd one , the first one outlasting my original $40 tool by about 40 doors

gemini doors are held on with pins , like a commodore , you put the shank thu the centre of the door pin and screw the rounded nut on , then you get your 12mm bar with notch on the end , and belt it with a hammer , this takes the pin out from the hinge

Or you can just buy one from your local paint & panel supplies.

If you don't get the 12mm welded on, use a vice grips and attach it to the rod.. Hit down for the top pin, up for the bottom.. have someone hold the door.. makes things easier.

You'll also have to drill out the ( can't remember what its called ) small length of metal from the body to the door.
