The second door is done. I just realized that I am ready to spray the second coat of epoxy primer on. Then sealer, then hi fill primer, wet sand, color coat(s), clear coat(s) sand and buff. Geez, I must be almost done with this car. HAH!

Above shows the damage caused by opening the door without an operating doorstop. When straightened, some rust holes appeared.

This is after welding and grinding, ready for the first coat of filler.

I got the first door done finally. It had a few more dings than I thought, but I believe I got them all.

This is the second door before I start.

I have noticed that the more you fill and sand, the more you find to fill and sand. Is this a law of body work? I thought I would be done with the first door by now but, apparently I'm just getting started.

The car is back on the other side of the shop. The first door is on the stand ready for  filler and sanding. I also have another Corvair job coming in. Always interruptions, although welcome. $$$

I guess you all thought I died. GGG Well, I'm back. Bathroom parts on long back orders, 11 stitches in my hand, Selling Dads house, 90-100 degree temps in the shop, having to go to settlement and about a hundred pain in the a$$ things kept me from working on the car. It's all over but probating the estate ( and the high temps) but I'm back. As you can see, the car is back on the rotisserie. I'll move it back to the other side of the shop and start on the doors. Then primer again. We'll see.
