    Thanks! Doug

    Thanks Doug, Ideally it would have been nice to have a reverse image of the gear pattern but it helped a lot to have the pattern I did.

    Progress Update




    So after a bunch of hammer and dolly work and shrinking the door looks better that what I started with.




    View from the inside of the door.




    In the spot that someone had chewed out the inner structure and peeled it back I cut out that and another section to get that area of the door in better shape. I wasn't bad in that area but there was a bit of oil canning and a low spot that I think I have in a little better shape now.




    Not perfect but it shouldn't take any more than a skim coat of filler now.




    Now to get the inner structure back in place. The extra section I had cut out tacked back in place




    All welded up and the upper part that was previously cut out straightened out but still in some need of fitting to the opening.




    Fitted up and tacked in place




    All welded up and the welds ground down. At least I don't have to grind these out perfect since they will be behind a door panel eventually.




    With the door back on the car I can see I will need to tweak the back edge of the door to fit better to the quarter panel but the fit is pretty good otherwise. Still need to weld the lower brace back in but I want to media blast the rust off the backside and prime it as long as it is out of the door.




    So that will be my next project is to start media blasting a bunch of stuff and getting some epoxy primer on them. Was going to start that today but the rain and drizzle put a stop to that since I have to do that outdoors. One of the first things to do will be the front fender inner panels. These don't look to bad after a good cleaning to get them ready to media blast. I ordered some Tamco Direct to anything epoxy primer so hopefully I will be trying that out soon.
