Door re-skinning

Any tips regarding de-skinning and subsequently re-skinning station wagon doors?

Any help would be appreciated.

Eastwood makes a special tool to crimp the skin back on. I have removed the skin with a putty knife without messing it up.

Get the new style-galvanized skins if you have push-button doors, then you will not be worrying about this again later and they are less prone to stretching/going wavy as well. Last I checked Stephen Peters at SafariRover had some.
