Well I probably spent 8 hours or so on the metal work
But I did fanny around trying to get better door gaps
Then there's the prep
I'll probably spend as much time getting the primer on
If I was paying I guy to do it I would recommend a full skin
It would be a faster way to a better job done
And the cost may weigh out the same in the end
Were my time is my own so it is cheaper for me to sand the filler to get a good door
Careful it's easy for the cost to run away with you in a workshop and you still may not get that good a job done
And insist on lots of weld thru primer in all the seams and areas that you cannot get to when it's all welded up
Good luck I hope it turns out well
