HEY, he didnt put any bracing in the door jamb....LOL
Before you guys have a heart attack....Heres why....
Any bracing will keep it from moving.....I want it to move as I cut out more and more...The hinge pillar has to go forward and I suspect as I cut out more and more it'll relax the metal and spring back and all my new stuff will fit just right...I'll be using just about all of my donor parts...including the inner pillar ,hinge reinforcement and the outer pillar.. Theres actually a lot of damage still here If I had spotted all this damage I would have used this car for all its parts for my 54 P/U which was my original intent...
I cut out everything and beat a few things back in place then test fit the new rocker (I found a red one)...
