Hi guys,

I've attacked my rotten doors. I've deskinned them and fitted the replacement panel from minispares for the bottom section of the frame and welded in a few other patches here and there. I think I'm ready to fit the new skins. My question is, given I don't have a spot welder, where should I weld the skins to the frame? Just below door handle hole and same place on other side of skin? And then two bottom corners of skin? In these places should I drill a hole in the skin and plug weld to frame? Thanks for any info.

Hi guys,

I'm no expert but got doors done. Drilled a hole below door handle and plug welded it. Welded the skin to frame after I folded it over on the sides towards the bottom. Also welded at top of skin where to it meets window channel and finally seem on side just below window channel where it's half folded over if that makes sense.

I'm not expert but made sense to me! Good tutorials on youtube from matt green and Davejaguar66. Might help somebody
