I have a fresh door skin on my 56 Nomad project (no Holes except door handles and lock cyl).
Is there an overlay available to assist getting the Belair door spears alignment holes in the correct location? The old door skin got away before I realized that it could be a big help with this.

Can you get the trim off of the other side? You could make a template and just flip it for the side you need. I make templates all the time for molding and emblem placement at work on modern cars. I use masking paper and mark locations of holes or whatever I need to mark with a Sharpie. I also mark some landmarks such as door edges or body lines to make sure I have the template located correctly on the panel.

Or, line the door trim up with the quarter and front fender trim and mark it on the door. The horizontal location isn't critical and by using the other trim, it will line it up better with the other trim.

The other door is currently striped, so making one this way is the most logical solution. I just need to know that it is pretty much correct. Currently the front end is not assembled, so line up to the front and rear is not available to me. I am always looking for the best way before I commit to something...Thanks

I currently can't find my assembly manual. There are measurements for EVERYTHING in the assembly manual; can't see why trim would't be included, although with Bel Air, 210, and 150 Models, it would make for a lot of instruction pages.

Most of the trim was installed at the Fisher body plants, so it is not covered in the assembly plant manual.
