    Skins refers to the outer panel of the door (the part you've removed). They are the "skin" on the door frame, the exterior sheet metal.

    On the orange Roadrunner, that is called a hood scoop. That one is an aftermarket scoop and is usually called a "Mopar Pro Stock" scoop.

    Dang, you've got some ambition! From the work I've seen so far, it's obvious you know how to work sheet metal.
    We sometimes forget your first language isn't English so don't be afraid to ask for explanations.

    Keep up that sheet metal work!
    Gives me the motivation to also tackle the body and floor of the F body.

    I hate to put a damper on this but if those are mig welds the thing is a hotspot for cracks. There's a lot of stress in the welds.

    It is possible to warm up the welds with a propane burner to release some stress. But maybe it is to overkill for a car welding jobs.

    Do you plan on welding in frame ties? I would highly recommend it if you haven't done it yet. It'll greatly stiffen the car.
