[Healeys] Assembly order

I don't know if the aluminum finisher set on your car is the same as on my bj8
but in order to insert the second tiny screw on the horizontal finisher (the
one that goes into the rocker panel) you must either have a stubby pozidrive
screwdriver or take the door off to get at it.  I'm not sure if even a stubby
will do it, of course as I remember I have my door check assembly attached and
that may be preventing my doors from swinging out enough for clearance.

Just a thought and my experience,
