Hey DJJ; I would replace the bottom of the door myself. Part #126 from EMS in ohio. That gives you the inner and outer lower door skin. Do it right the first time and it will last you another 60 years. Price is around 160.00US. If I can be of any help to you just pm me. I'm in the process of getting my '46 back together. Good luck. Its nice to see someone else has a great taste for those fat fendered forties. Cheers!!!!!
