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!

Thanks guys, this project has been stalled (wow 6 months go's by like that) as I was working on my 1966 Nova. Changed from a turbo 350 to a 700r4 (4L60) had to build the trans, re & re and build a trans mount shorten drive shaft and change the shifter to accommodate the 4 speed. Other than that took the summer off and now that the summer toys are winterized I am thinking more about this project again. I have also been helping a buddy with his Chevelle. Ok stop making excuses right! I hope to get the garage organized so that progress can move forward again.

I know we are all picture whores here are some old photos I have yet to post. I did start on the other rocker for the passenger side and built a rack to easily move the car around. Last shot is an inspirational shot to get me motivated!
