Oh no... don't misunderstand. I get it. I'm just wondering.
You can measure 20 and cut 10 but in the end, you never really know how it's gone until you've got a door hangin'.
I'm sure it'll be fine. Just had to ask.

Inside view on passenger side, I already overlapped the inner sections to add strength to the seam, I still need to reinforce the B pillar and put a plate over the interior section. Future plans included a reinforced speaker hole in that area while I am in there. This allows me two things, first better not so noticeable acoustics, second access to clean and seal the inside area in the future.

Drip rail was left intact, spot welds were removed from the backside then tacked in place.

Drivers,side still needs the interior weaved in and welded. In this pic you can see the issues that happen to the interior B pillar.

This is where the seam of the window pillar is, this was a butt weld with .030 wire, all the welding pictured was done by my friend who has by far more experience doing this kind of work. This is the area where it became evidently obvious that no two trucks are assembled exactly the same. The roof pillar is a little larger than the tub section at the same points. This difference was minor but noticeable, I alighted the important areas which was the exterior, and windshield flange. The other areas like the door jamb will require slight filling to compensate. The interior section is covered with plastic so that is of no consequence, the jamb is only slightly stepped. Instead of grinding flush in that area we decided that fill would be better as to not affect the integrity of the pillar.

Well keep my fingers crossed I guess LOL. I was seriously anal about alignment and the measurements, I do have a rust free set of factory doors to go on there. I have used Raybuck doors and fenders on our old 79 Chevy pickup we used to have, that's when I learned the difference between factory and aftermarket parts. The aftermarket always requires bending, tweaking, filing of holes and all kinds of BS to get it to line up. Then the parts rust out in a year or two anyhow. The only parts I am considering for aftermarket is rubber and glass, I want clear untinted glass for everything because I am going to tint the glass smoke grey to match the truck paint. The glass will get done before installation so there will be no areas where the rubber does not cover and the price is more reasonable if they can do it off the vehicle.

Wish I had a chassis and tires to fit under there, the height looks about right.

Lookie what I found, my old Pro Comp gauges from my 80 Chevy. Those will look nice in my 91, I'll need to buy a couple to make a full set but a nice find. I am going to add vacumme and take one fuel gauge from the set but everything else is in great shape and super expensive stuff nowadays.

Dug up some more goodies while packing stuff up. Mass Air Flow custom billet Mallory TFI FE distributos ( NOS ), they are not made anymore since being bought out. Also my custom billet Ford Power front timing cover with removable plate for abjustable timing chain, i got one with the blanked off fuel pump boss to clear my CV pump adaptors and machined accessory bosses for a crank sensor.
