Re-working the door swing.
Requires change in the door frame to plate angle adjustment. Also need to be careful to have it swing out enough to avoid body collision.

Which early cars had emblem delete? CSX2000 was brushed aluminum with no badges, and Shelby hand lettered front and back, for a short time. Cheers, Dennis

Thanks Dave

Door frame Ferrel added and frames painted.
Aligning rear clip, making sure to get the angles and dips correct.

I'm not to worried, there are young men, and probably some women who still make chain mail. I know a few who are young, and have English Wheels and can use them! Cheers, Dennis
