Part Three: Shave The Doors
1. I placed the metal filler plate into the door to test for fit. Even though the stamping of the doors is consistent, some additional grinding may be required. When I was satisfied with the fit, I cleaned the paint off the work area all the way to the bare metal. It's best to use a DA sander with 36- or 40-grit sandpaper to rough up the surface of the door (inset). This will help the body filler bond better.
