Mangled doors...

Postby Steve » Tue, 30 Jan 2018 4:12 +0000

My cous's car was reversed into a pillar last week... it resulted in 2 damaged doors

Image

I found 2 reasonable doors in the right colour (bonus!) and started with the front.

A socket extension and a hammer got the door pins out, then just disconnect the electrics.

Do the reverse to get the new one on (bit of fiddling needed)

Image

Do the same on the rear :

He's happy enough as the doors were only 150e ;-)

While we were at it we converted the windows to the motor in his and moved the electric folding mirror + speaker on to the new door.
Last think we'll look at is converting the rear door from manual to electric hopefully just a matter of swopping in the motor and the door card (which also has a built in sunblind).

Looks grand ,and cheap .Its great when you get used panels in correct colour.Real bonus.Also saves time and money having to paint internally/build up internals, then paint and finish externals so money saver all round!! 10/10
