    Bodywoork Q- Door Skins

    Hey guys, could do with a little advice- I'm re-skinning all the doors on one of my projects, but I also plan to relocate the door handle a little higher up for aesthetics.
    So I've been wondering, is it a good idea to skin the door first, then chop out the handle when it's on the door and put the new section in, or cut out the handle and let the new section of handle in before I put the door skin on the car?

    Obviously it would be much easier to cut out and let in the new steel with the door skin off the door but I'm wondering which way round would give the least distortion? Or do you think it doesn't matter either way?
    Just don't want a wavy door to repair or a baggy door skin scenario! What do you lot think?

    Thanks for reading!

    personally i would skin the doors then tackle the handles after.theres no real technical reason for it ,i just think its easyer to line up etc with the doors fitted,and what looks good off the car can sometimes look perdy crap on it. hoppe that helps,cool project by the way. emma,{J n E rodshop lincs.}

    Thanks guys, I'm glad I asked because I was swaying towards doing it while the skins are off the car, but I can see your points on doing it once fitted now so that is what I'll do!
    LMP- The door handle moving is on another (not hotrod but retro) project but glad you like the P6 project
