Few steps further along.  Thinking this is how the top "corner" will be.  Gaps will all have to be "normailzed" with weld wire welded to the door edges at some point.  Next steps will be to skin the doors and build up the inside.

That Chevy held up good. Any accident you can walk away from is always a good thing. Sorry for the misfortune of having an accident but glad your not hurt.

 

As for the build I was wondering how your going to do the doors.

Meanwhile, first latch installed in the door, today I'll get the pin mounted and pray nothing locks up!

Dont stop posting, please. This has been very interesting to watch and would hate to not see the end product. Keep up the good work.

I hope that I never said anything wrong @PilotHouse2500 to make you want to stop posting. I am very sorry if I did. My wife says that I am always guilty of saying the wrong things, have been beaten with strong words many times and deserved it.

No, I meant I was likely a few hundredths of a second from not being on this planet as a living being....if he had T-boned us at 60+ mph....I don't think I'd have made it.

I am really glad you made it thru that. And I hope you get treated right from the insurance.

I think @dripley is mistaken your thread for @Blueox01 one similar situations, he may need some of that blinker fluid too :sofa:

I should add blueox01 video is posted in my thread "my truck almost killed me" but I know he posted it before too.

Yep thats the one. I came home to only 3 cans of blinker fluid and one can I put in the freezer yesterday. But I do have a jug of high test in the cabinet. Crown Royal Black. I need some of that now.  Sorry for my confusion. Maybe to much high test fuel.

Another door I had laying around made the ultimate sacrifice yesterday (at one point I had 17 doors, got down to 6, will now be down to 2).  I like how it's looking, trying to keep the "look" of the styling of the era.
