$850 new but I've seen as low as $40 used.

I'm thinking finding a used door in very good condition and having it repainted.

That's a pretty big canopy.


Hopefully it doesn't break with the wind.

190E wise, there were a few, but I'm not quite sure to do in my situation. I have a huge hole on the inside of my door, but what do I do about it? Ignore it until the car gets a respray and just make sure it gets some rust protection? Get a new door and have that repainted? Do I worry about keeping the original body panels? How much money are the new doors worth?
Could you simply patch it?
