Aw man, you need to get some foam wrap for large pipe to cover the lower edge of door.
Contrary to myth, Pintos didn't dissolve in rain... road salt's a different story...View attachment 495430
Took your advice dematt and went to harbor freight and bought 4 cheap C clamps, I put 1 under the rollers on each side and one over the rollers so the door won't raise, very good idea
And just for giggles, here's what was in the garage, that actually fits inside View attachment 495431
It's supposed to look dirty and grungy, not much time for a car wash in the middle of a zombie apocalypse LOL

I had the same problem with my duster, pull in until the bumper touched the front wall, and push out on the door to close it, it's gone now though
It had to go when I got the Imperial, the city I live in has a real stick up it's a$$ when it comes to cars sitting around
I know, why didn't I get rid 0f the Pinto instead of the Duster?
Well the Duster had a lot of sketchy repairs, needed trunk floor, floorboards, rear quarters, front fenders, and a COMPLETE interior, plus it only had a /6
I've had the Pinto since 1989, and its amazingly solid for a Pinto, and well optioned
That’s a nice duster, is it a 74? That pinto does look pretty solid, usually those are rusted away. You don’t see too many of those around much anymore. My sister had a Ford Granada years ago and I remember the rear bumper falling off from being driven in the winter salt. The whole rear frame area was totally gone.
