Description

Gulley Performance Center offers the Ron Covell SKU-1000-32 Building a Roadster Body, Part 3: Making the Doors. In Part Three of the Roadster Body series, Ron Covell gives a detailed look at each step in the construction of the doors – which are arguably the most complex panels on the entire car. Ron explains why the hinge and latch connections should be ‘beefed-up’ to improve the strength of the doors, and shows how to build a robust internal structure that securely supports the hinges, latch, and sheet metal panels. A broad range of tools is demonstrated - including a shrinker, stretcher, beading machine, and the English wheel. One of the focal points is using a Dake reciprocating machine (similar to a Pullmax) with custom-made dies for forming the deep, intricate beads on the door edges. Ron demonstrates a unique way to crimp the door skin to the inner structure - utilizing locking pliers he has specially modified for the task. Whether you’re a beginner or an expert, you’re sure to learn a great deal from Ron’s unique solutions to common problems, and every step is covered thoroughly - with great close-up photography, and detailed, easy to follow explanations.
