I'm assuming you are speaking metaphorically, Soltz, and I agree with your sentiments.
A bunch of us on this forum enjoy the trip, [building a hotrod] but the destination is secondary [the driving of 'said' car] because now you're not using your creative juices to solve problems. Enjoy the trip, [the build] and life can't get any better.

Looks like the average amount of rot out a ten year old New England vehicle.

Dutch,
I'm more confident in my skills with a smaller panel instead of the whole skin considering the curvature of the door. If someone made a real skin for this car I'd feel safer but no such luck!

I understand what you`re saying, but I would actually be way more intimidated by the route you are taking....

Ya know what's funny ( funny odd not funny ha, ha ) is that the entire skin would be easier than fixing a smaller area would probably be easier.

Patch came out really well & managed to keep from warping it! Will finish up spot welding after lunch. Luckily the diver's door is in much better shape & I hope to have both doors finished by the weekend.
