    You need a friend in a rot free place. With some patience, one could hunt down a door cheap. What kind of prices were you seeing?

    I'd have swung $250 for a white door.

    The thing that scared me is that all of the s10 3rd doors seem to rot. There had to be some kind of factory defect. There are 2 nice drain holes and they still rotted...

    I feel better putting new metal in place myself, and treating it for MN saltfest.

    After installing my new power mirrors a while back, they both only moved one direction. I ordered a new SKP brand switch from rock auto. It was under $25 shipped, and fixed the problem.

    I'm still waiting for a new lower 3rd door latch, and both door switches for the dome light to arrive. After those 2 things, I hope to be driving this truck. it is starting to grow roots...

    The new ac delco door switches arrived and I put them in last night. The dome light works now.

    The new 3rd door lower latch arrived today. I put it in and all is well.

    Mini started earning its keep yesterday, as it has been hauling me to work and back. :)
