Default Best practice in removing '54 F100 doors

I am restoring a '54 F100. Looked at door hinges and access to the pillar 6 bolts or the access door on the door itself (6 bolts). It seems that the door bolts make an easier removal. Any advice out there? Thanks.

Did the door bolts on my project. Makes it so much easier to reinstall too.

If the doors fit good now, take some pics of the bolt locations on the door for easier reassembly.

If you drill an 1/8th inch hole thru the door side of each hinge into the door before disassembly, you can use them to index the door into the original position when reassembling.

i second the drilling of holes take the doors off first if you need to remove from the body do the same i do this all the time on a side note eastwood has a kit for this its amazing how much new weather striping or being off on a setting will ruin your day ,i speak from doing i was working on a 51 f 1 floors/rockers were welded not by me without doors on truck had to shave weather striping twist the door frames [not fun] but got them to close with 1 finger and seal tight
