Rear Door Magnets



I started working on the back door again and glue the Magnets in place.
The inner frame I installed on my rear skins also have hidden magnets,
So as the door comes into position the magnets will hold it in place.
My rear door has really gone downhill since I 1st painted it and the signatures
I have on the outside will be lost due to the need of repainting the door.
I hate to loose them, But the door looks terrible.

I would leave the sigs man!! A beat up door is all the more authentic anyways!!

Why did you get the outside signed?

I had planned on being able to show the signatures, But I want be able now.
I'm going to add a inner panel for the sig's. I just hope I can get them again.

What about a couple layers of clear gloss....then you could mask off the sigs and repaint white. Ten you would likely have a defined window of sigs?

Or forget the clear coat and just mask off the sigs and repaint, then just blend it around the sigs somehow...maybe with some steady airbrushing...or a VERY fine sandpaper.

What sigs do you have? This kills me! :P

I'm tried to mask around the sigs.,
But it looked terrible.
I made a big mistake doing the sigs on the outside. I didn't think about repainting the door.
I have Kenny's and the Jawa guy.
I may wait and see if I can get the sigs. again and then repaint.
