Would you save this door? The passenger door looks about the same. They are original but the passenger door was re-skinned in 68.

I'm not even sure I want to spend the money to have them media blasted. Though finding good replacements may be just as difficult! The car will be a driver.

Too far gone. You'll have nothing left after media blasting. I just replaced mine with some pretty good originals. Mine had way less rot than that.

THROW THEM OUT ! But first buy repros and transfer the hardware. Seriously the time spent repairing those would far out weigh the cost of new doors. I know you say it is only a driver, but you will regret painting patched up bondo filled doors. Especially when they start to rust 6 months after you paint it. FWIW mine were just as bad and I bought the repros from CJ's,... worth every penny.

I wouldn't bother with those, too much work involved. Get a decent used pair, their's some out there.

Wow, those things make all 4 of mine look like mint NOS units. :lol: Those seem like they would be awfully hard to save, and I do wonder if they would survive blasting in the first place if you tried?

I'd toss them, but wait until after you have the replacement parts and everything transferred over AND working fine. Otherwise, you'll regret not having them for reference when your putting your new ones together.

Here in sunny AZ they are pretty easy to find, rust free, but the shipping will be big $. I've heard greyhound is reasonable.
