Are you sanding that by hand? If so spend a few $$$ on an electric sander. Can get them for $20 and it's hella easier that way...

looking real good bro......starting mine here shortly....taking a little different approach, but along the same lines as you!

VERY good work for a first time job!

Also, as said above....either get a air sander or electric!

How can you use the handle to shut the door or are you going to roll the windows down every time?

Did u just body filler 1/2 the door? Cause that might crack over time with the door shutting and stuff.
