Re: Project: Big Grapefruit

Had some time tonight to work on the 4th door. Been fighting 100 plus days after working 10 hours this week. Its shaping up though.

Re: Project: Big Grapefruit

Thanks for the kind words gentlemen. I plan to keep this one around.

Yesterday was spent tacking the faux door panel in place and stopping to go get my new outter door skin. I picked the skin up from LMC. It is a key parts brand and seems good and thick. I also picked up the lower inside door patch to chop up for the patches I need on the lower rotted parts. Trevor

Re: Project: Big Grapefruit

Decided to not use the lower door patch. It was a pretty flimsy piece. I started eyeballing rocker panels and figured out they had the correct shapes and are a good thick piece. So I started cutting them up for my lower patches, turning out good.

Re: Project: Big Grapefruit

Tonights progress on the 4th door. Getting the details knocked out. Got the inner door handle area reworked and installed. Got the other tear drop cut out and welded in to access the bolts to the exterior door handle. Little by little.

Been figuring out my door panel situation. A plastic welding first for me with no solvent welding.

Thanks Leon, I want to say thank you for the suburban years ago. Spent the last couple of years building the confidence and gathering the parts needed to get started. Trevor

Re: Project: Big Grapefruit

Been awhile with the last of the beer selling season, but have been plugging away and got the pillar welded in finally. Glad to be over that part.

Thanks for the kind words gentlemen. Found my paint color 2015 Vette "Tiger Shark Grey" and interior color bright red for the project. Give it the classic 50's vibe.

Been working on finishing the inner door and all its fine details. Also finished up the complicated inner brace. Started mocking up my gaps and door skin.
