    The outer skin when on the car is not in alignment with the body

    The PO took a lot of fiberglass off the body to make it align with the old G28 door.

    Also the NEW door skin needs to be lengthened by about 1/4 inch.

    Grind, fiberglass, cure. Turn over, repeat.

    A test fit of the door..... skin fits a lot better. Getting there


    Still have some adjustments to do, really ?


    The horizontal body line that runs between the door and rear qtr panel, align nicely.

    Looking good man, I know what a pain it is to work out small details. They wind up taking a lot of time but are well worth it. Just makes you nit pick somewhere else lol

    Decided to go with the W115 latch, Instead of the W126. Got the OEM measurements from Auto pro as well as a replica upper gasket. Thank you AutoPro!!

    The OEM lower gasket really wont work without major mods to the G28 inner door. Made my own cover.

    The OEM Latch is mounted lower than the G28 latch location.

    The engine bonnet release handle had to be moved lower as well.

    Took a ton of time to fabricate the handle support.

    I had fond memories of this massive erector set my dad bought me when I was in second grade

    Ordered up a remote door lock and unlock system.

    While Im waiting around, made additional adjustments and fiber-glassed the outer door skin (again).

    Next is the reinstall of the window glass and mounting of the OEM outer wind sweep.
