Hello - I just replaced some doors ( complete door shells ) 69 camaro. I
replaced them due to the fact that it was alo easier then welding new
skins. The replacement doors are from classic industries & when I looked at
them in the bright light the door sheet metal looked a little wavey ??? Is
this something that may be due to optical illusion ?, or expected before
final prep ?? I expected to see extremely straight door panels ....
considering that they are brand spanking new. Did anyone ever experience
this ??? Or can this be sanded pinpoint straight during the prep phase of
restoration. I really had some high hopes for my dream car .... & just
wanted to know if anyone experienced this before ?? Possibly I am
overreacting a little. Thanks always in advance for the great advice you
I've never replaced a set of door panels myself but from what I
gather, every book that I've read on the subject says that door panels
are never absolutely strait. My replacement quarter panels had/have
plenty of inconsistancies in them before I hung them on the car. Fill
and sand, fill and sand, fill and sand....
68' Camaro RS
88' Firebird Formula
00' Mustang GT Vert
My body shop man & I were dissapointed by the quality of the quarter
panels for my '68 I got from Classic.
I wish I had gone with his recommendation for Year One, or even Goodmark.
You get what you pay for, and have to make it up in hours of expensive
labor, and a rear window that dowsn't roll down well.
