Ive tried junkyards i have a fine collection of doors from junkyards that looked good but are full of bondo. i guess i shoulda checked them better.The problem is all these El camino and Malibu doors rust out in the bottom corners.I talked to a guy at a car show on sunday,he says there is a pontiac door that will also work.I have no idea what car that would be though.

I think i have seen new door skins for the malibus and el caminos, try elcaminoss.com or Mill Supply @ rustrepair.com I found these looking for some stuff for a 1980 Malibu SW still looking for a airdeflector for the back window, mounts to the roof over rear window.

OOps Mill supply was not the one, try showcars-bodyparts.com go to their site and email them and ask for used stuff i don't think they had steel skins just glass.

Wow dude, no takers on your wife? I tried that once, but as soon as she spoke, he brought her back.

A man sits in a bar next to a drunk. he reaches in his pocket and pulls out a watch and looks at it with admiration. he turns to the drunk and says, "See this watch, I got it for my wife"
The drunk smiles, orders them both a drink and says, "Nice Trade"

Hey 80camino, have you tried to contact Memory Lane here in Cali? They say they are collector car dismantlers.
<a href="http://www.oldautoparts.com" target="_blank">http://www.oldautoparts.com</a>
Not much of a website, but you could also call them: 818-504-3341
I don't work for them or anything. I had a friend send me their way when I needed a new hood for my 61 Apache and front grill emblem (which is the only piece that is not reproduced.)

Try this;

<a href="http://car-part.com/" target="_blank">http://car-part.com/</a>

I buy 500 dollars a month off this site and the only way I've found to get hurt was to out-think the wrecker and hurt myself.

I just ran a search for an 80 Elky electric left door and came up with 11 of them from $75.11 all the way to $350.

Enjoy
