Got even more accomplished today, tinted the side windows with 5% tint (it’s pretty dark), completely reassembled the doors, including the inner door panels. They now both close with a reassuring smooth thump and seal nice and tight and sit flush. I also did some light respraying of the passengers side door jamb, to fix some primer overspray and some nicks.
Now I plan on focusing on the underside of the hood, so I can prep and paint it and clear it out. So that I can reinstall it along with the grille.
The good thing is, if I do get to keep the hsop, it will only take a hour or two of disassembly to get to the point where i can paint the body.
