It may be a hassle to re-fit the doors before the new quarter panel is welded in place, but consider the hassle if you DON'T do it and find out afterwards that you're off by 1/8"? However, to an extent I agree with Carolina 29053, in that if the jamb is still the original and hasn't been messed with/bent/knocked around so far it SHOULD all be OK.

I always double check all gaps before welding. Where the door meets the quarter panel need only be out a fraction of a inch and without the door fitted you will never know. It's better to check fit the door now than weld and find the door gap is out later

I don't see why you'd need doors back on to weld a new skin in place, just line it up good on the jamb like you've done. I'd say if the jamb had been replaced and you lost that reference point, maybe then??? Looking good! I would recommend coating the back side of that new skin and the exposed side of the old with some POR-15 brush on paint. Tough stuff and will protect the inside for years to come. Just my two cents, but you don't look like you need it! smile image
