    Default door skin replacement

    is there any company that sells door skins in the usa and at a lower price? i saw a company in canada showcars(?) or something buy that name, but it seamed that he had a bad rep. So not real sold on that guy if you now what i mean.

    2nd option replace both doors. any good place for those?

    How much are they to begin with? That will give people an idea of what you mean by a lower price.
    How bad are your doors? couldnt you weld up the rust?

    theres a place in aus. wants $250 ea. its not the rust the door has a lot of waves from being hit or bumped. so instead of spending hour upon hours sanding and filling i thouht this would be the best way to go.

    Probably cheaper to have a pannel beater knock the dents out, than replace the door skins.

    Quotes and links don't work because people persist in posting to top-level groups. It would be nice if there was a way to prevent that.

    Your best, and cheapest source for doorskins is Tabco. Thier products can be sourced from victoria british, but sadly victoria british almost doubles the price. Fortunately, you can order directly from their website here: http://www.tabcobodyparts.com/

    I ordered a rear wheel arch with lower front quarter section for $54.75, while it's over $95.00 from VB. (Those are US $ by the way). It's smooth, and fits snug over the old panel. I'll be cutting the old panel out sometime next month to replace the damaged wheel arch.
