    Got home tonight from being away at work for a couple of weeks. Jumped in headfirst. Someone had cut some horrible holes in back doors of van for windows. Which are not recessed like factory blue ones and look terrible with gaps around the windows. The bottom portion of the blue doors are rotted , have holes ,and dented up.
    so my plan was to cut upper outer portion of blue door skins with the factory recessed windows and weld them in to the black ones. This van is the first time doing bodywork and this is something I have never done before.

    I measured down 22" from top of door made a line with tape and cut door. With diegrinder and cutoff wheel. I am making this one longer so I could fine tune later. I made it above bodyline so I dont have to mess with getting it straight again

    Drilled out spot welds on both doors with a spot weld cutter and on inner and outer lip. Used a pry to roll up skin. Must be better way because I put some dents in the door trying to pry up outer skin lip up.

    Blue door was cut approx. 1/2 " longer. Once black one removed placed blue skin over black door . Measured from bottom to ensure square and right length scribed a line and recut black door to ensure minimal gap to weld. Thats all for tonight. Bedtime

    Cool

    Take your time keep making spot welds like that untill the whole seam is solid with spot welds.
    This is where even seasoned welders make there mistake.
    On a nice fit like that the temptation to keep welding is hard to resist.

    Cool

    this paint is inexpensive enough that the learning lesson is not too costly.

    If you are mot happy with the end result it will not be too hard/costly to make it right.

    Protect the door with a piece of flat bar like 1/8 by 1" (taped in place) to spread the load.

    Sprayed some epoxy primer to seal things up and high build primer for something to find the high and low spots better as I was down to bare metal and cover up some scratches. I do still have plenty of body work to do.

    Changed it up a little. Wife and I started on interior. Installed metal studs on walls and build some interior panels. First time for any o this type of work so was a big learning curve. Trimmed metal studs and riveted them in used 1/8" panel board with polyfoam, glued and stapled the vinyl on to panel board. We are going to make 3 " strips of wood to fasten the panels at the joints so all panels can be removeable. Panels just leaned up against interior wall still have to line them up.

    Wall panels mocked up. Final adjustments to do. Rear Seats are leather seats out of a 2001 to 2005ish chev crewcab from a wreckers also got all the seatbelts. Fit very snug between wheel wells and had to trim a small tab off of the mounting bracket. These were the closest fit i could find as mini van seats are not wide enough

    Started on roof supports small galvanized channels cut out notches at roof joints made a bend with shrinker stretcher in the channels to follow the roof line of van better at the rear above seating area so less loss of headroom. Jusr cleco'd in place for now as still have to add some insulation in spots.

    I like the way you did the cross studs for the corners. What did you use for the ceiling studs, lengthwise?

    Just a tip- put some rubber, or felt, or gasket material- just put SOMETHING between the studs and the roof ribs so you don't have squeaks...
