NeitherFanboy Okay, I took it to the body shop. Read the threads and checked the door, there is a crack at both the front and back of the window frame and I was afraid I would muck it up and make it worse. Bodyshop will bend the door and make it fit right, weld the cracks and repaint the door for $500. I found the doors on a craigslist ad, afraid to tell you what I paid for them! LOL

Yeah, just wanted to double the "gentle" part.

Sedona2001 Just curious but where did you get your full doors and what did you pay for them?

Full Door Question

Okay, I bought a set of used full doors yesterday, the passenger door is in great shape, the driver's door needs a little work. I think the driver's door may be slightly bent, because the top of the door seems to stick out just a little while the bottom of the door is flush -- and the passenger door does not do that, fits flush all the way. Anybody know if a body shop can slightly bend the top of the door inward so it fits better??
