    Wanted to start on the passenger door in the first week of January but got side tracked.

    First thing to fix is the A- Pillar . made some adjustments to the width to match the drivers side and add a flange for the weather strip.

    Used the windshield as a guide for the flange.

    laid up some fiberglass to repair the weather strip flange in a few areas.

    Installed the flange that was made, that runs along the A pillar.

    Installed the weather strip.

    On to the inner door skin!

    thought about using the original inner door skin, but after 1 minute decided it was a POS

    the new inner door skin is warped on the bottom and had to be fixed as well as the front section.

    also added csm on the insides to thicken areas that would be ground down on the reverse side.

    good times!!

    The second door actually going better, as I actually feel like I know what I'm doing... to some extent

    At least not making the same mistakes.

    Up next the upper door curvature and the window tracks
