    LMC has $130+freight doors. They are the "high quality replacement parts made overseas" I think that means they are the black taiwanese ones. Anyone have direct experance with LMC with these doors for fit and contour. I have seen some real junk out there, and dont want to buy it.

    I dunno man, but I've got some cheap aftermarket doors that came on my blazer. They're thinner metal, the window tracks would jam up all the time, so I am in process of making half doors out of them. Just my experience with doors.

    There is a company called GoodMark Industries that makes GM restoration body parts. They might have a better replacement.

    The only thing I would get from them is fender wells. I paint them three times and they hold up ok. When it comes to stuff you can see I get GM. Like doors and fenders.

    The one bad thing I've heard about the Taiwanese sheet metal is that it rusts MUCH faster than the GM stuff. Not a good thing since you live in the land of salted roads. [​IMG]
