e39 540i Body Shell Project
I'm in the middle of replacing the passenger side shell on my e39. I have a parts car shell, and have been drilling out the spot welds. I'm at a point in the project where I could use some advice. (Do's, dont's, problems that I may encounter, etc.) Not sure exactley how to proceed from this point to get to the shell that I need. I need to replace the door jams, (from just in front of the passenger door to the tail lights. The parts piece that I have has plenty of excess material. Has anyone ever done this kind of work before? I would really appreciate any advice and knowledge about this project. I have attatched some photos.

Ok, as I'm getting more into this project, things are starting to make sense. I have found how the skin has been seamed to the car. I have removed a kind of putty sealant, which was covering the seams.
Question - Will the skin seperate without diffuculty once the spot drills and putty sealant has been removed from the seams?
