Nice work on the door Q. Sorry to hear about the quarter. I pretty much always live by the adage (and I know you do as well) "if you want it done right, do it yourself."

Yea B..Most people would leave it...But I've learned over the years that sometimes you have to bite the bullet & do stuff over to make it correct..& At the level I'm taking this car to I have no choice..

Scott - great attention to the details.

Have a quick question - why do so many want to go for the OEM full quarter when most of the damage could be repaired using a lower quarter skin? It really seems like you/they are taking on a lot of extra work?
To someone that knows very little about body work, the skin seems better; if you don't mind seeing that seam inside the trunk?
That is the only advantage I could think of...

As always - THANKS for letting us learn from your videos & posts!

The door looks great and seems like it fits very well. I understand where you're coming from I hate doing things twice.
