Vintage Door Rebuild 1952 SS Clipper

I'm Robert from PadX. Had this trailer about a year. Got to the missing wall stage. Went back to Boston 2 weeks ago, took a puddle jumper to Plattsburgh,NY at 10AM from Boston, 1 hour. Cabbed it to Colin Hyde's shop. Got a intense 2-3 hour seminar, hopped on a return plane at 4PM to Boston, and by 6:20 was back to spoil my way cute twin granddaughters. The best thing I could do.
So back to PDX. Pulling off 2 more roof panels. Located a co-worker for riveting help.. On a budget, so some jobs like the panel replacement, following cash flow.. Coming up new frame...
But back to the door. I have some of VTS's SS hinges.
Current door. Hinges cut. Lots of bent skin, and holes. Any wood...gone. Screening....gone. Lock set....gone.
But Not sprung. Inner framing and door frame appear good..
Glass not broken.
Going to strip it down and separate the doors...spread it and get a game plan...
Final plan is new inner and outer skins, new screen, and rehang the door.
