It appears so Mike but I am not ready to answer for sure yet. I have blocked the door down with a long board and 180 grit and am going to feather it in about 3 inches from the body line. At that point I can tell if the DPLF is adhering out to where the 36 grit scratches are. If it is, I am going to prime it with SPI epoxy. If not, obviously I will have to go ahead and strip the whole door. The doors have been painted for at least 5 years and these bubbles along the crease line are the only failure anywhere including the jams. Ironically both doors have bubbles in exactly the same places.

So far, I am finding places in this groove I can peal the epoxy of with my pocket knife and areas that are adhered well. Even though I have no failures outside the groove I need to feather it down and check it.

I will post pictures and description of what I find.
