It looks very much like a MGTD from the same era.

Good start, Jo.
(I am very gentle with my sandblasting on panelwork, steel or aluminum - using lots of baking soda is my first step, usually - after first chem stripping and using a torch to remove plastic or f'glas overlays. )
8 door skins - yoweee. Glad you are particular about this fine little car.
Curved glass, too.

Jo,
Your work looks good,


When I skin those type doors I will shrink in diagonally about 6 inches
at the lower front and rear corners, This will give the slight bow across
the center that is needed. For the top edge fold over I will clamp back up

wood and hammer over with a mallet, as I recall TD doors that I did had
a pie shape cut where you have the quick radius change, It was welded in afterwards.


Ron
