    I'm in the planning stages of some experimental body surgery. I plan to modify my doors, and my OE ones are pretty hammered. I'd like to find some that are in a little better condition than mine to use as a starting point. I'd prefer some that are more or less straight, especially around the edges where they line up with the body, and without too much rust. Dents, dings, scratches, etc. are fine. I don't care what color they are (they'll get a fresh coat of Krylon before being put into service), and I can reuse my old glass, window mechanisms, locks, handles, interior trim, hinges, latches, mirrors, etc. If anyone knows of any, please let me know.

    Thanks,

    Pete

    Well, I don't have any extra doors, but I too was thinking about modifying my existing doors and when you are getting ready to modify, get ahold of me I would be willing to come over and lend a hand.

    Basically, what I want to do is to cut off the bottom of the doors near the lower edge of the trim, leaving them just tall enough for the window to work, and then move the door sill up. The reason I'd like to find new doors is that the bottoms of mine are pretty hammered from dragging the rocker panels so much. I really just need the door shells.

    Good Idea. They are definitly cheap, usually too picked over for anything I need but they'd probably have doors.
