74 Chevy Nova Update 10 - Bare metal Doors & Epoxy Primer

I took the Doors down to bare metal (including window channels and weatherstripping channels) than did the body work. Since I like the sport mirrors look, I bought some Camaro mirrors (There are no Reproduction Nova Sport mirrors available). These mirrors were listed for the Chevy Nova. Did the retrofitting and primed with 3 coats of Epoxy primer.

74 Chevy Nova Update 11 - Re-Epoxy Primed Doors
Block sanded the doors to see where I was at with the body work and reprimed with Epoxy primer again. Only the outer portion of the door was reprimed as the bottom inner portion does not need body work.





74 Chevy Nova Update 12 - Block Sanding Doors #2 with Timelapse
Here I block sand my Door panels for the second time. When I reprimed the doors, I added extra paint to the lows so that I can block sand the doors smooth. I show this in this video with timelapse of the actual sanding process from start to finish.
