Hey guys I am trying to do the job myself
But I need advice from all builders
I am trying to clean my door jams from my 86 Monte Carlo
You guys think. Need to remove the complete door with hinges or without?
Jams look like this Puddy is pealing off. I was told its a sealer from the built
What I wanna is fix that pealing puddy primer for paint. I just dont really play around with door adjustments can u guys help with a easier way to do my job?

You can do it with the door attached...all the way around if the front fenders are removed. Are you stripping the car for paint? There are tricks of drilling holes through the hinge/jamb to align the hinges/doors when reinstalling. Otherwise, just get in there with a knife and scrape as much as you can, then put new putty on and smooth out better than the factory did for better appearance.

Under puffy it looks like rust or some kind of dark spots
