Yes exacactly.THat is my biggest concern now. The crown of the doors. i have all new body mounts installed and shimmed.i can get all of the gaps figured out i think.I just think my crowns are worse then they are supposed to be. I just not sure how bad it is going to look if i dont adress it. Or should i build it out with bondo or all metal and try to get it closer but not perfect.I have seen guys long block right over fender to door and door to quarter. there is no way i could do that without 1/8 to 1/4 think bondo. And for the record i am trying to make a nice weekend warior. Not a top quality show car. Thanks guys!
There ARE some who have been able to disguise the crown by multiple means - Thick Bondo, strategic and vastly numerous heating applications, etc., but these are time consuming and labor intensive for a Daily Driver as is your intension.
I'd suggest the normal routine, Careful block sandling, and maybe a ultra thin skim coat to counteract imperfections. IMO, you CAN have excellent door gaps even with a crowned door.
It takes a LOT of patience, and should be approached with a one-step-at-a -time method, so you immediately know cause / effect.
I use paint stir sticks as go/no go gauges, they are very close to 3/16" and easy to work with.
