I've truly enjoyed reading all you have done on this car, but in your latest installment, this comment caught my attention:

"Since I had both the drivers side doors off for body work, hinge rebuilding, as well as complete refurbishment of all their innards, I cleaned, sanded and painted the door jambs, It's amazing the number of HEAVY runs that were in the original factory paint. Whats interesting is that the entire drivers side paint has runs, while the passenger side does not."

The 80 Concord that I had for the last few years, when I was going through the doors I did much the same as you - freshened up the A and B pillars, door latch areas, etc., and noticed the exact same thing - ridiculous amounts of runs, drips and sags on the driver side, and very well laid paint on the passenger side, with nary and run or drip anywhere.  After watching a Kenosha paint shop video on youtube, it appears that while there were automatic guns that handled the roof and exteriors of the doors, it was 2 separate people who handled the the door jambs, underhood, etc,. It looks like both your car and mine had the same 2 people - 1 knew how to lay paint, and 1 either didn't care, or had little training!
