yeah all SLE/SSEi doors are really SE doors just with different moldings...


but remember there are two different parts, the part that is actually on the bottom of the door, and the part that runs along the bottom and up the part of the fenders that make the door panels flush with the bottom of the car..... correct me if I am wrong anyone.

Well I haven't done it, but I imagine that all you would need to do is take them off of an SSEi or SLE.... once you have them, remove the chrome looking strip off your doors to make them flush, then attach them with some 3m tape (i would guess, correct me if I am wrong).... If they dont match your car, get them painted to match.... Personally I would do the job myself and leave the painting to a professional, It'* probably very straight forward... Also, I have never removed the chrome strip on my door, but If they are attached some how with 3m tape, and leave holes, I would definately fill them in with something to prevent rust.


Did you end up finding a set?


Gumball'* picture gave me the idea:

probably, if possible use a hard plastic one, for it doesnt do any damage to the moldings... if you get them, enlighten us about how much you got them for, I haven't been searching for a while, I will need to go soon.
