It’s been a busy weekend catching up on unfinished jobs……..the Doors!!!
It’s still the Doors!!! the never ending job 🤨 well there’s now light at the end of the tunnel 🎉🍻
I can say without any doubt body prep is not my thing, the endless amount of filling and sanding over and over again is tedious to say the least!!
It would appear there was a lot more heat distortion to the door skins than first thought, very disappointing especially as they looked pretty good when first spot welded.
The new door bottoms have taken shape quite nicely, if you weren’t familiar with the original pattern they fit in well.
More filling and sanding
Attention turned to repairing the damaged caused when fitting the door
You can certainly tell autumn is here, the moisture in the air didn’t do me any favours on the unprotected metal in the last week or so, the surface rust appears very quickly 🙄 but at last it was time to paint.
I like to get the bonda red oxide to cover everything for max protection which can be a slow process, when the paint is wet it is very noticeable how distorted the panels are, good job it’s not a gloss finish.
Second coat is the grey Zinc primer which 🤞 will give the truck a few years of life.
