Thanks guys for the compliments.

Here are some shots of the door skin so far ,we lost our electric for a week here from hurricane ike so i didnt get to work on it this week but i did get some done over the weekend.

The marks in the upper part of the door skin is from planishing the door skin to get the curve to fit the body corrctly since the curve is quite tight . i still nedd to do some gapping to get a proper gap all the way around the door but its getting close now i started to do some mud work on the top of the window frame to make sure my lines will be correct.

Hi there,
your build on the door looks fantastic, but I'm confused as to your old fiberglass doors showing their age, fiberglass shouldn't be giving you any trouble. What's happening? is the fiberglass delaminating?...even though fiberglass gets old, it's still lasts a really long time, or so I was lead to believe Very Happy . also, are you going to add a curve to the side window pillar?
Cheers,
William

Wow great looking car!!!
I`m new to this site, and I have a kit here in Norway that I`ve planned to get a stance like yours.
What size wheels are those and what suspension?

Love your car Smile

Have you sent him a pm yet? He most likely has it linked to show up on his normal email.

No the old doors where way over built ( weighed 75lbs each) and the door frames where cracking and i was fed up with messing with them so i decided to build them out of aluminum.

The wheels are Colorado custom billet rims 18x12 on the rear and 17x8 on the front im not sure on the offset but i could measure.

The suspension is all custom made the rear uses Lincoln Mark VIII rear uprights with tubular a arms and the front i am redoing with all long upper and lower control arms, it had a fiero cross member in it before with tubular control arms and i didnt like the way it drove so i tore it all out and im am finishing it up now.

I havent been on here much as i took about six months off from working on it , i moved the roof up 1.5 inches and now i need to move my door frame up to match( i decided to do the roof while i was at it ) then i redone my floor pans from the front of the seat forward plus the front end , once that is finished up i will start on the drivers door.

Been a long time since i posted in here , i took about six months off from the project last year to catch up on customer work and do family stuff .

I started back on it over the summer and decided i wanted to get the drivers door done and try to get it ready to paint, i also had to finish up the front suspension as is was in need of lots of work.

I moved the roof up to give the roof line and more accurate look, i wish i would have done this before i made the passenger as i had to go back and redo the window frame for that side to match the new roofline.

I also completely reshaped the whole front air dam and front of the fenders as they where drooped in the front and looked very bad.

Here are some pics of the work completed before i stopped last winter.






You can see the back of the wheel flare in this pic i split it and widened it by 2in at the very bottom to match the 79-80 S2 style wheel flares,i did the same on the front of the flare also.








Here you can see where i started to reform the lower air dam to be more accurate to the original.







Here you can see i had to move the lower part of the air dam down ( where the brake ducts go) and reform the lower lip .




Here you can see the drivers side fog light tucks in on the lower right corner i fixed this later on and didnt get a picture of it.



This is the complete front air dam now with the lower scoops fixed the brake duct hole enlarged and more correct and the front trunk lid reshaped also ( the lower front edge was rounded instead of squared off).







Here you can see the gaps on the trunk lid are not very good they kinda round off before they go into the trunk jam i fixed this next.
