Has anybody used the complete sedan doors that restro-world sells ? I'm thinking about going that route instead of trying to repair mine. How well do they fit ? thanks :blowtiedb:

Hi,
I used the complete sedan doors on my 55, they come with the black semi gloss coating on them, mine came in a box that said Golden Star Classic Auto Parts.
Imports I think.
I thought the fit pretty good, a little tweak here and there, not too bad.

Check out my build thread, most of my car is golden star. There's lots of problems with the aftermarket parts. Not only golden star panels. But the way I look at it, what's the alternative. Unless you can make your own. But for me the doors were fine. One thing I did do was tweaked the outer skin on the inter frame because the two aren't welded just crimped to each other. Once I had them were I wanted them I spot welded them in key spots. The new trunk lids can be done that way somewhat. Ron. http://www.trifive.com/forums/showthread.php?t=93211&page=2

I have been following your build it looks very good, nice work. I don't have that much skill but I'm taking my time and doing it slow maybe that way I won't mess it up to much. I'll be glad when all this body work is done..More work on this car than any other I've built. :blowtiedb:
