Jason - You will be happy - now I know what you were talking about in your PM!! HA!

As far as rebuilding, no, not yet - too bloody cold, but I do hope to use all the same parts. I know it is going to be a PITA but I expect one whole day for each door is what I am looking at.

MAKE SURE YOU BUY THE PRIMED ONES - just because that is a step you don't have to worry about.

oh wow, thanks! I didn't see the primed ones as an option. I will make sure I change that

Update, shipping for all four skins and a few other small bits for the rebuild is about 150 USD.

Door frames sand blasted and dropped off at the galvy shop. Now I just have to wait a week.

Galvy porn

Got the frames back today. 160 bucks is all is took. Can someone tell me if I should prime these before the skins go on? Also is it better to skin before putting all the parts in or after. I would think it would be easier to skin after so you have access to both sides but I'm not sure if there is alignment issues or something im not thinking of. The skins are galvy and coming to me primed.

Thanks for any help, Jason

Jason - If I were you I would prime AND paint them before you assemble anything. You do see a lot of the door frame when all is said and done - and it is much easier than worrying later about getting paint and primer on parts or other such stuff.

I really tried but there was so much goop between the skins and frames there was no way it was going to happen

Etch them
marine bond and fold the skins on
prime them - cure them
paint them - cure them
clear coat them - cure them
sound reduction performed on the inners
mount them - align them - mark them - remove them (leave the hinges in position or mark the position)
mount the channels and glass
build the inner mechanism
mount the panels
mount the doors
mount and align the strikers, seals, etc…

Enjoy.

That's what I was thinking. I was actually kicking around the idea of powder coating the frames then doing a color match paint job when it's all done. I don't know if that's just extreem overkill or it makes sense. I'm mostly thinking about the final finish considering how rough the zinc is. I need to find out how far I can go smoothing it out without going through the galvy. I don't ever want to mess with these doors again

I'm looking forward to seeing how this turns out. I'm toying with the idea of leaving the galvy exposed on mine, but have concerns that I'll scuff the paint if I paint the skins first, and think it will look like crap if I mask and paint after.

You don't want to paint the skins first. If you want to prevent corrosion, paint the inside of the skin, but not the outside before mounting the skin to the frame.

Remember that you have to bend the edges of the skins around the frame. Unless your paint is fully cured (several months of polymerization) and high quality urethane/epoxy, I doubt it will survive.

Wow. Sounds a little daunting.

Is it easier to build the guts without the skins on? That is the one part I am worried about. I may take the frames and skins to a body shop I use from time to time to put them together. It is worth the money to have someone that does body work do that part

These will be the last doors standing. After the meticulous planning and execution there's no way these are going to ever see mud and salt ever again.

nothing easy about the mechanisms although the earlier ones seem better than the new/tdci style ones. I'd rather change an engine than build a pair of 2nd row doors.
