Driver's Door - May 25, 2013

Moving to the top of the door. The gap was basically 1/4" except at the front immediately behind the curve where the front edge "rolls" into the top edge. For about 3 inches just past the curve connecting the front edge to the top edge, the gap was about 9/32".

Since the door only needed 1/16" added to it, I decided to apply weld to the unground edge rather than weld a rod to the top. In hindsight, it might have been better to weld the rod to it. In the end, the gap looks fantastic.

I was originally going to lead the opening at the point where the front window post meets the body line and the rest of the door. After cleaning the opening and trying to figure out how to work and file the lead, I am contemplating welding the door edge instead.

The bottom of the door was marked and taped in preparation for gapping the bottom. I had originally assumed the door would have to be removed. However, since seeing that the front only needs a short section ground and welded while the back requires an even shorter length, I am going to try to perform all the remaining mods while the door is still on the car.
