Outer rocker panel for both left and right.  Dry fit right now.  Next would be repairing the door hinges and the door skinning.

Ordered a door hinge rebuild kit.  The bottom hinge shows out of round, thus a lot of play.

I checked the weight of the Drivers Door and I came up with 90 lbs.  So how do I lift and keep the door still so I can attach both hinges and adjust the door gap.

Checking the door to quarter gap.  Currently the outer rockers are clamped in and the outer cowl side hinge panel is roached.

Decided to media blast the Rallye hood.  The top looks ok.  Some areas will need filler.  The inner structure is another matter.  Looks like the area around the hood latch area could use some work.  Not sure if anyone has done work on the inner structure?  As a backup, I picked up a Shaker hood from Carlisle.

Moving on replacing the left front frame rail, shock tower, and inner fender.  Would be nice if I could weld all three parts together while out of the car.  I'm guessing safer one piece at a time.  Currently building additional brackets so the new frame rail drops in perfectly.  I noticed the k member bolt threads don't look good, so I went ahead and ordered new ones from Roseville. I used the promo code.  Every bit helps with the restoration.

Noticed I haven't updated the project for a while.  Removed the Left front frame rail, inner fender and shock tower.  Then removed outer cowl side hinge panel on both sides.  Also, the upper cowl and firewall have been removed.  Doing some front window channel repair.

Media blasted the Kmember and sprayed it with dp90lf.  Since I'm replacing the front left frame rail, planning to use the Kmember to align both front rails.

Bolted on the K member to the front frame rails.  The front left frame rail was replaced, so making sure everything lines up.
