Then refitted the rocker back into place.

Re-installed door and front fender to re-check alignment and door/fender gaps.

Got the doors stripped and ready for the bodywork to begin on those, was surprised at how little damage I found under the paint. One small dent that was visible before stripping process, and one larger dent that was beside the door handle on drivers door.

Results after the first stage of stripping, lots of effort to get all the original paint removed. I opted to use the stripping method as I am still finding sand from sand blasting from the restoration of my Nova 29 years later!

Same slow process to get the paint stripped from the passenger door, amazingly no dents on this side!
