1967 Chevrolet Chevelle Doorskin Replacement - The AMD Chevelle: Part 3

Door skin replacement--we show you how.

By , Photography by Aaron Hopkins

In the last two issues, we have been covering how the crew at C. Hopkins Rod & Custom in Commerce, Georgia, has been resurrecting an original SS396 '67 Chevelle, dubbed the AMD Chevelle. The idea of this project is to show you how to take a worn out musclecar and transform it into an assembly-line-fresh piece, using high-quality new sheetmetal from Auto Metal Direct (AMD). The work on this car is pretty extensive, so think of this as a worst case scenario build.

The first story showed how to properly strip the car down to a bare skeleton in preparation for all the new AMD sheetmetal. The second story showed new floor, quarters, roof, and other panels being welded in place. This installment will show the proper procedure to re-skin a door with AMD's GM-licensed door skin. Handling the restoration will be Craig Hopkins and his team: son Aaron Hopkins, Caesar Brecino, and Chris Dyer. Craig's shop is Auto Metal Direct's main installation and R&D center, so we have one of the premier crews doing the work.
