1947 coupe door
The skirted coupe doors are hard to find not rusted out. By the time you see rust on the outside, you can be sure the inside pieces have already rusted through. The trick with this one was that I didn't have the car. So first order of business was to ask if the door fit well as it was. It did, so I needed to create a jig to hold this door where it could be removed, cut up, pieces taken off and put on. Yet still get it back in a position where that I could measure widths, height, and contours. Started with a nice flat table top. Used wood blocks to secure it. MDF sheet to locate the bottom edge. Florist type bricks to locate the edge shapes and height.
