    cleaned up the door latches, the one on the right is the driver.
    It looks worn, may need to replace it. Getting ready to hang the door.

    Looks like you've got all the hard stuff done!

    Is this just a trail fit of the doors before you shoot the jambs?

    What color will "Jane" be when you're done?
    (You've had plenty of time to decide! ;) )

    Keep up the great work, Clay!

    Hey Terry!! The plan right this minute is to hang all the metal back on and
    block it. then pull it of to jam everything, but I may jamb first.

    Right now the thought is to shoot it a some sort of Burgundy.

    Thanks!!

    Curious to see what color Burgundy you go with. Mine is in paint right now with @bodymanbill. As of now I think I am going with Porsche Burgundy Red Metallic which is apparently a pearl as well but still havr time to decide.... A couple of links if interested.
