73 Door repair
#1
Keys 
Has anyone fixed doors this bad?
I can't find full door skins only the botton 9"
I cant find any interor door shell sheet metal
I would like any advise
I have the lower skin patch.
I plan on removing the fold in the patch area.
Then I plan on making the front and corner from scratch, weld in these patches as well as any other spots that need new metal.
Once this is done and set at the proper angle i will install the lower skin patch.
The other problem is the coragated seal trim piece.
can you find them some where?

Pm Don @ OMS, or motorcity mustangs, or CJ Ponyparts, or any of the other dealers. Might want to look at replacement doors from a parts car, guys on here get them all the time.

I've been a bodyman for 25+ years and also agree those doors don't have much to work with, you would be way better off replacing them, just think of rust like cancer you can slow it down or maybe even get it to go into remission but it will come back at some point! It would suck after all the work you done to get it all pretty and painted than a year later have it come back.. just my $.2

I have L/R California doors not perfect but very solid.

I'm no expert, but I don't think they are worth the effort to repair. Proably would rust back through in no time.

I will take some pics this week. Its been awhile the last time I took a good look at them. Their rust free , but they have a fair shier of door dings. I pulled them off a 72 Grandé. Mike.
