This morning I did a trail fit of the door and it fit pretty good I got a nice even gap from the rocker and door bottom and a nice even gap at the door to 1/4, I can deffinetly work with that...I bocked the guide coat to make the body line stand out so I could see how the bodylines lined up and they looked good too but HOLY CRAP the 1/4 and door are a lot rougher than I thought...Now I'm thinking I want to replace them too...Not wanting to look at it for a while I hung the fender To see how it fit ,I dont want any more surprizes... It fit really well but needs a little work on the bottom....
Anyway for a trial fit I'm very happy with the gaps and now I can take it all back apart and finish my welding,I'll use that time weighing out whether or not to replace the 1/4 and door ,I'm thinking I will...40.00 ea at the pull it yard ,at least I can go there tomorrow and see what kind of shape they're in....
