Rotten Door Skin Patch

Recommended Posts

I just bought a wagon a few days ago, and the driver's door is rotten all along the bottom. It looks like the cancer has gotten the exterior skin of the door, but the interior door panel is still there.. still has SOME substance to it; possibly salvageable?

Anyhow, I have a 620 parts truck that's about to go to the scrap yard, as well as a 280zx. My question is, has anybody used either of these types of cars for cutting the lower panel from the outer door skin in order to replace one in a 510? I've not had much experience in body work, but with this wagon, I think I'm gonna do a bit of learning. Thanks!

Yes, I have definitely thought about that. They use the same doors, so naturally that would be the easiest and most ideal solution. However, all the 4-doors I have around are not ones that I want to cannibalize. That's why I'd rather use the 620 or ZX sheet metal.. seeing as how those are of little value to me.
