After bracing up the door opening over the weekend, it was time to cut. I sectioned out the center of the heater channel and left the ends. I'll cut out the ends of the skins right before I weld in the new parts. I figure I'll leave them in place until I get the new skins blasted and painted. Since I have left them on the shelf for a few years, they need a bit of rust removal before installation. I am hoping to get them blasted/cleaned up this week.
