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.....

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

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 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...

Looks awesome!

Some days I feel like I make a mistake whenever I go into the shop, good to know you're human as well.
