    • 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

              • Didnt get as far I wanted to as I had to work Saturday

                Cut and fiber glassed to correct the curvature of the inner door.

                While that was curing used 18 gauge made some tracks for the window

                cut weld grind. Didnt have the touch this time when welding the thinner metal

                Bent the upper inner side support.

                Mounted the window motor, test fitted glass

                Fiber glassed upper door .

                On to the fiddly part, installing the inner window wipe and side tracks

                      ZERO,

                      No parts of the REDO's original doors are being reused, complete garbage. Even the inner steel frame..... it was unpainted and rusted. A lot of the frame was delaminating from the fiberglass inner door. You can see from earlier posts that the prior owner had the tendency to cake on Rage filler to up to 3/4 inch thick.

                      It was a mess.

                      • Got the car outside and started on the passenger rocker, waiting on a part for the passenger door.

                        Also have to REDO the Drivers rockers sitting to high in the rear

                        • Hey, it's seeing the light of day!
                          It's also nice to see some shots of the entire car so we can see how it is all coming together.
                          Looking good!

                          • I've been following this project for quite a while, and it's been interesting, I like your attention to detail correcting imperfections along the way
                            Here's a video of a guy and a shop altering his real lambo, might be of intrerest to you, especially the wide body alteration and what they're doing to blend it into the original body

                              Thanks 20 below! It is a lot nicer to work on the REDO when it is outside.
