Ugh, lets try this again

Got a problem.

Basically, a bad rip of wind ripped my door out of my hand when I was getting out yesterday and it apparently bent something.

Anyone know where I can get cheap door hinges if I need them? I'm thinking about throwing some shims in there if I can. Sucks. First the wreck now this... I can't even get the door open more than 3"

Thats not good...

This happened to my wife before and it actually twisted the front pillar (? Where the hinge mounts to the body) It wasn't cheap for the body shop to fix. :(

I hope its just a broke hinge.

Wound up being the whole door needing replaced. Dropped off the car today at the body shop, picking it up in 3-4 days with a new door. Sucks, but what can you do?

BTW that edit in my sig is a misleading....

No it'* not. **** clipart is inappropriate anywhere in this great world. Especially when it'* directed as a stab at authority. Bye-bye again, Sinsister. Every Moderator on the Staff was as appalled as I was at your poor choice in taste, and it was the final straw.
