Also any pictures on how you reworked the door shells to fit your new skins would be very interesting. Thanks.
On the first build i did not use any of the inner structure of the vette doors. They were framed in aluminum also.
On this one i will. I mechanically fasten the aluminum panels to the birdcage/fiberglass etc. Lots of little brackets etc.......and being creative.
Today i wire framed in the rear arch and posterboarded it. Next i will marry the front and rear together. Ray

This donor car had some major front frame damage in its earlier life. It had been pulled but not enough. I decided to stop the mock up and go ahead and swap the frame out. The body is back on with the new freshened up frame and will get back on it! Glad i did, Ray
