240 paint job with minor customizing

What color are you spraying? We want pictures!

The lower door mouldings are just on with double sided tape. The beltline and rocker trim are held on with clips with holes in the body. I don't know how most fill those holes. My first thought would be cut small pieces of sheet, not much bigger than the opening, then tack a piece of welding rod to it, making a "handle". This is a backing plate of sorts. Slip it into the hole and weld over the opening. Good application for a TIG welder, not so much for a MIG or stick welder.

I'll make a plea to reconsider getting rid of the beltline trim. I think 240s look funny without it. With no trim there's just a straight line bulge in the middle of the door, like something is missing. Perhaps you would consider trim from an earlier 240 that is slightly smaller. Trouble is it may be tough to find, especially in good usable condition.

Good luck!
