Passenger Front Door Rust

The Passenger front door is by far the worst of all the doors on the car. Not only does it have several waves and a few creases on the outer skin, but the inner structure down low has some rust holes… dangit anyway! If we had a better door, I’m sure this one would find its way to the recycle pile, but we don’t, so it must be repaired. Fortunately the door on the Biscayne parts car was in better shape and served as a donor for the patch. It was a simple trace/cut/trim/weld process. Unfortunately we ain’t done yet! The outer skin has a few pinholes down in the lower rear corner to address. That will wait till later.
