I went and took a good long look at several photos of B23-7's, B30-7's, and B36-7's. Here's what I found.

It turns out that you don't replace any of the short doors ahead of the engine area. Instead, they 'slide' forward toward the cab.

I have had to convert David's original ASCII art to gif's, as they didn't display properly anymore. Something must have changed in the Ver. 3 browsers.
