Looks great, Phil! I'm looking forward to seeing your door windows go back together. I haven't gotten around to taking mine apart yet.

Brian, I was just out your way visiting my son who lives in Hillsboro, just outside of Portland. First time out to see him in close to four years (he moved there November 2017, pre Pandemic) and first time to the Pacific Northwest. You live in a beautiful section of our country.

11/23/21: I finished welding in the drivers side lower inner door panel. Things went pretty well except while cutting out the patch. one part of the seam got a bit wide requiring a bit more welding and allot more grinding. I ended up grinding the edge where the outer and inner panels meet, to separate the panels, because the lip of the outer panel that wraps over the inner panel was way to rusted to open the fold. I added the lip and just welded the edge where the three pieces meet.

Overall, I am very pleased with the way it came out and anxious to start reassembling the door. I’m only touching up the the door in the areas that I messed with, so I’m having trouble with getting a color match with a spray can, it doesn’t have to be perfect but just close enough so It doesn’t look too amateurish. It’s somewhere between almond and ivory (I’ve tried both). If I could mix the two cans together, it would be a perfect match. Probably Not! LOL!

Looks good, Phil thumbs_up
You might check out Rustoleum Canvas White. I found it a close match to the original Waldorf White of my inner grille.
Just take your door to the hardware store so you can match the spray paint they have on the shelf. wink

At one of the local Wal-marts, the spray paint aisle is multi-color from the idiots testing the rattle cans. nono

But Phil, the big box stores have those carts that hold plywood sheets, that would be ideal for your door. Just roll up to the paint aisle. grin

Go for it Craig. If I can do it, you can too. wink Besides, you bought a Made in China "exact fit" patch panel. eeeek

Then I could be one of those idiots that try them on the door to get a color match!

I have to agree with you on how beautiful it is out here. I have a great view of Mt. Rainier from my yard and never get tired of looking at it. I hope you had some decent weather while you were out this way. We've had some whopper flooding situations lately. We certainly need the rain and the snow pack after the overly-dry summer we had, but it can get to be too much. Sure makes everything nice and green out here, though!
