Hi, I caught my door on the tree on our drive which means bodywork is needed on it, which also means I've got to replace all the wood otherwise it will stand out like a sore thumb. I was thinking of doing it anyway as it is so faded but this has forced my hand. I am going to have to strip the wood off the door to be able to paint. But I am wondering if it is necessary to strip it from the rest of the car. Is there any reason why I can't just go over the top of the existing vinyl? I was planning on just going around with some acrylic putty on the small number of nicks that exist and sanding the whole lot with a 240 grit. The car is a 1970 Country Squire and I've ordered the wood from Stripeman. Cheers Phil.
