    Next the seat belt anchor plates are welded to the floor pan and will eventually be covered by the sills.









    And then primed

    Firstly the door skin had holes drilled approx every 3 inches along its edge, so that it could be plug welded, then primed and painted inside.

    I

    I've highlighted the holes in this picture.

    Then the door skin was offered up to the door shell and only the top corner tacked, this allows the skin position to adjusted to ensure the best fit. It was then crush fitted and finally welded using the holes already drilled, finally after paint I'll use some seam sealer to prevent any moisture ingress.

    Fairly time consuming but the fit is fantastic.
