Depends on your climate and what they use to melt ice.

We don't use salt out west, so we have no rust. Not there or anywhere. Shipping a door would be spendy though.

to remove the Black part at the back, you need to pull the window channel rubber out and remove the screws behind it.

My 93 SSE doors are white (16U) with grey panels, and are perfect.

Yes, Yes I do.

Probably would have charged me less than the yard did.

I should have a buddy helping be remove the rusty parts, and weld in the remainder of that piece from the red doorto replace the parts missing from the white one. Just need to replace the window piece as it is rusted to hell.

And ryan. Good luck with the grinder and painting. On both of mine they pieced just melted away. More than could be replaced. Maybe with a LOT of RTV, depending on how bad yours are.

Hopefully the dead door that is on my car is good so I can get the rubber and window off of it
