As on the passenger side, a piece of a Malibu door skin provides the basis for the three piece filler. The top piece has to be massaged with the English wheel, the shrinker and a hammer and dolly. Six or seven hours later, the three pieces are tacked together.

Started working on the driver's side A pillar by first adding some reinforcement with a piece of 11 guage from one of the spare door braces. I'll need to fill in the gap between the lower edge of the windshield frame and the edges of the door and fender. I used the patterns from the passenger side pillar to get a head start on the three pieces that make up the filler.

Spent the day trimming and fitting the bedside piece to the passenger door. I also dug the door and window weatherstripping out of storage and fit everything together.

Started working on the door part of the fender-to-door transition on the passenger side. First, I trimmed the edge to match the fender edge, then I rolled the edge with a hammer and dolly. The rolled edge still needs a little bit of work, but it's close. The gap looks good and the top edge still clears the fender as the door opens.

Not bad for a guy with a $30 set of hammers and dollies from Northern Tool.
