    You'll have it looking better than OEM in short order! I think I'd finish out the welding on the top to get that piece fixed in space, then fit the door to the new profile.

    Enjoy the little things in life, and you may look back one day and realize that they were really the BIG things.

    Hey, it's all just a bit of sheetmetal work, no big deal!!!! Takes a lot of patience, templates become your best friend, a body hammer and dollie seem to be permanently attached to your hands, and my final word on sheet metal tune-ups, if it was easy everyone would be doing it! The truck is coming along great!

    Started the day off with a trip to a car show and ended up doing a little bit on the truck.
    1 st pic shows the difference between the doors, a little closer look reveals the left door had been crunched at some point in its life.

    2nd pic is my alignment tabs for the roof.


    auto focus seem to be having troubles.

    Selma is just north of San Antonio, Tx. My shop is in Seguin, Tx. east of San Antonio about 30 miles.

    Nobody has to steal any ideas from me I'll give them to anybody who wants them.

    Kurt: Where is Pahrump ??

    So if you have glass in the short door, when you roll it up how does the fit seem? Wondering if you could push up the upper channel a 1/4" and fix the gap, as well as get the window to have a proper seal?

    Yup that's exactly what I'm going to do. My old auto body buddy told me how to do it without screwing up the door skin. at least it will be closer.

    Nice work on the door. One thing I thought of, is as that cab rusted the cab could have settled and someone back in time could have massaged the top of the door down one way or another so the door would still shut and hot hit the drip rail. Just a thought. The repair is looking great!

    The door sucks, more troubles than was ever seen before. I was able to pull up the window frame 1/4 inch but there's more trouble with it. I'm posting pic's of both sides and I think they'll tell the story. In the end it will work til I find another or at least another upper part of a door that I can graft on .
