Thanks Joey, you ought not have ruined me over the years with your project threads. Always a fan when you're turning wrenches, straightening fender, or building something real nice.

Time to get friendly with a spot weld cutter

Door skins are not impossible, but do take time to get right. You're a seasoned hand, after seeing all you've done so far, I'm confident you'll do fine.

It is much easier to do them on a table, than on the truck. (I love lift-off hinges for this)

I've enjoyed watching this build, I'll stay tuned for more progress.

You consume too much welding fluid and fall off that thing, remember to keep you feet and knees together and execute a proper PLF!
