Thanks for all the replys. Couldn't agree more on the posts that state now days almost no one wants to repair just replace!!! Glad you posted about Mexico. Headed to Rocky Point in April. I have had body work done down there several times. Thanks again

safe travels

I wouldn't bother with body shops and take the doors to a metal shop. If they can't repair to as new they should be capable of fabricating a replacement.

The modern body shop does very little actual metal fabrication. Mangle a fender and they bolt on a replacement. Other body panels they will cut out the damage and weld in a replacement from a donor vehicle. Very little fabrication or shaping involved. The guys you can see on TV reworking a 32 Ford making new body parts are far and few between. About the same as finding a TV repairman who knows vacuum tubes.
