Shields go on coating side toward the interior?
The black side out, so you'll be looking at brown when they are installed.
Shields go on before the door cup angle bracket?
I think not.
Goop around the window crank and door handle shafts - anywhere else? Photos?
Seal the edge with strip-caulk.
Punched holes for door panel clips don't seem to align very well with holes in door, is this typical?
Sadly. You need to finesse the clips before installation.
Is it typical to have to trim any of the outer edges? I don't see a need yet but thought I'd ask.
Not usually, they are die-cut.
Any other tips/tricks, things I should know?
Probably, just keep asking.
Simple job I know but thought I'd ask just in case.
Amateur restorer. Well, sometimes I have been paid for it. But not right now.
