Hi all manged to sneek out into the garage and do a few bits before the end of an eventful year dragged the welder out and welded the bottom half of the door which went well,, took my time and cooled off each bit with compressed air to stop warping,,,cleaned up welds and flipped it over again for another paint up this time i used that lidl deco white paint just for a bit more protection im hoping and still seems fine on my little test pieces outside,,,trial fitted skin and seems fine so hoping new year i can get door back into one piece,,also rubbed down the new panels black protective layer and gave it some of my own red oxide,,, and just to finish off the day i got the side window out and gave it a cleanup, wire brushed off the rust gave it a coat of rust killer and this is where ive got to,,
SO Happy New Year to you all and see you in the new year!!!!

Cheers cox71,,well ive managed to drag out the welder again over the last few days and got stuck in,, first the struts had to be welded to door which took quite a while as it has to align with the outer skin to enable the wing mirror to be mounted,,, first time had to cut off weld and redo it this left a bit of a gap at the bottom which i managed to weld in a small bridging piece,,next up was the struts attached to the outer skin before welding i put a large run of tiger seal to glue the skin to it... next up i drilled a series of holes in the new skin lip before i plug weld it in,, trial fitted about 10 times making various adjustments when finally happy i marked though holes removed skin again then cleaned off any paint off those marks so the welds take,,, once again aligned up and plugged away,,,lots of time later the bottom half is on,,,ive still got to grind off welds and probably do a bit more filling up small holes but looks ok with minimal warping,,,next is the top half hopefully tomorrow,,,
Ps treated the mask with a new lens what a difference this makes
also the sykes and pickervant mole grips with the top piece made of copper is a must,,1 stops weld going though making cleanup easier 2 clamps metals together while you weld in between gap and 3 if there`s a hole un used you can clamp behind and weld up hole without wire poking though all the time..

Well i managed to get the top section welded in and ground down and looking quite good if i might say so,,, then cleaned up with a prep wheel and cleaned off ready for a bit of filling action,,,after laying down a thin coat and left to dry i then wrapped a bit of 60 grit around a piece of wood and rubbed down until it broke through to the metal covering most of the spot welds,,,,obviously this will take several passes as always the case,,,, then moved onto the door skin area which as you can see has a large area dipping about 3mm in centre which i will try and knock out to get closer to minimise filling,,on the whole its not too badly warped,,,so shouldnt take long to prep for paint although there is a fare bit to do on the flip side where i fabricated those bottom panels...

Hi all been busy decorating for the last few weeks so not much time in the garage however this week i managed to spend a few evenings and a couple of days on the ever lasting door project,,, thought id get both doors done over the winter months but i was wrong,,, as the saying goes think of a total number of hours and double it or in this case quadruple it,,,, well if you remember i marked where i thought there was a dip in the new panel how wrong can you be,,, i will let the pictures do the talking ,,,ive seen a few videos where the panel beater just plasters the whole panel with filler and then shapes it as required im thinking this may be the way forward as im spending too much time trying to feather filler into the new metalwork,,,,
well i think im close now so have rolled a coat primer on as i couldnt be arsed to set up the sprayer and cover everything and heat up the garage etc etc i will give it a few more coats to build up a bit of rubbing down thickness then flip it over and start on the other side bit more filling on the welded parts but not so important,,,
