There was more to that repair than seeing led to believe. Below the drip rail piece thatís welded in, I cut a portion off the bottom to expose more rot.

The driver door, note damage going right over the body line.

Used masking tape to help keep the body line straight as possible, theory anyway. Filled up to the tape then block sand. Then switch masking tape to the other side.

Passenger door was better, the body line was spared from damage but had dings all over.

Put a 350 2 bolt Vortec block in it from a 99. Like these blocks cause you get the roller set up and stay more or less true to the build. My opinion anyway. Did have to use Flotek heads though since the vortec heads were cracked.
