        • How do you decide whether it's the door that needs moving or the fender that needs moving or a compromise between the two?
          I always love your creative use of clamps and spreader bars

              The fender is fixed to the body, the door skin is movable. I did add some Duraglass and rage to the fender to bring it level to the door skin

                    You and I both know this is WAY cooler than any factory five kit and will be a lot more rewarding to you when finished..........just don't give up or abandon it.

                              • Well I blocked the body as best I could

                                Time for some featherfill G2! I used a 5 stage Apollo HVLP. Started with a 2.5 mm tip and a D cap at 5psi and blew out a qtr in about 3 min

                                Switched to a 2.0mm tip and C cap and 4 psi. So much better and smooth. Using FFG2 and with no thinning.

                                The black shows every flaw.
