Yep. :)
Door # 1 taking shape, it's about 1" lower in front than at the rear of the door and I gave the top of the window opening a bit of a curve for that old timey look, rounded the corners. Been 16 years since I made the doors for the Hennway and I seem to have forgotten how I did it - getting back on the learning curve means some pieces end up as scrap :(. Well at least lessons learned on this one should make the other door go together easier.....

So I'm looking at the pic of the door from yesterday and spotted a monumental screw up.... I forgot to allow for the door gap at the top when placing the window opening, so it wound up being about 5/16" too low, not matching the height of the quarter window :mad: Also the gap at the front of the door was too wide :( Spent half the day cutting it apart and raising the opening and welding a strip to the front edge of the door - then fixing all the warpage from welding. Did get the door handle and mech mounted, window tracks done and window winder from the F100 figured out tho...
