Or upgrade rather.
So as you may recall my driver's door has been dented since the car was hit a few years ago. I've had a spare door kicking around for a while, but while the door itself is in pretty good shape, it had some pretty nasty scratches along the bottom.
Well yesterday, before the storms hit, a friend of mine (who used to work in the detailing business) and I worked on touching it up with a special tool he has that allows greater control of the paint flow than the standard bottle of touch up paint.
Today, I put the door on, which was a bit of a PITA. However, the results are well worth it. No more unsightly dent! Sure paint hue is off by a bit, but its only noticeable in photos, and I'm ok with that until I can have the whole car painted..someday.
Said door before touch up.
Here you can see the dent pretty clearly in this older photo.
Panel, lock cylinder, and wiring harness comes off old door.
Old door comes off.
New door goes on (PITA lining it up), with the wrecked door panel it came with.
Cleaned up a bit. Look, my door trims line up now!
Made my day.
