There's a place called Auto Body Specialties Inc in CT.
I know they have the lower door skins, they may have full.
Their number is 860-346-4989 for information. I don't think they have a web.

Anyone know who carries full doorskins for 5th Gen Elkys.
I had a hard time finding new door skins for my 79 a few years ago. I had to get 82-87 door skins and modify the mirror location. I remember that the 78-81 skins were no longer available then. I haven't seen anyone who sells the 82-87 full door skin in quite a while. It seems like only the lower patch panel is still sold.

You may find it easier to locate a set of doors from the southwest.

:mrgreen:

On the 81 that was given to me there is a crack on the inner door frame. The guy who gave me the car stated he tried to find a new door and was quoted a price around $600. Needless to say I still have the cracked door on the car. Not sure where the $600 door was coming from but I'm located in CT.

There was a website www.auto-parts-for-less.com but I can't log on to the site anymore, They had all and I do me all body parts for the 5th gen Elky, even listed a new frame. The inner door shell sold for $629, and the outer door skin sold for $134. I think the only body panel that I didn't see was the firewall, they even listed the roof, all stripe and graphic kits, floors, bed, tail gate, inner and outer quarters etc. You could have built a new Elky. But I can't log on to the site. Maybe someone has heard of them, and has a phone number.

I did a quick search about www.auto-parts-for-less.com and came up this information:

Registrant:

Might be able to call them. Not sure why the site is not working though.

Whoa!!! I don't know what's going on here with Auto-Parts-For-Less, but Skull is right. This is the price they're showing now for doorskins and doorshells. Just a couple of months ago they listed the doorskins at $147 and the doorshells at $629. All their prices have gone sky high! Anyone know what's up with this? Their prices have quadrupeled. Looks like they better change their name to Auto-Parts-For-A-Whole-Lot-More!!!

OK, OK your right, your right, but please don't kill me! I've got too many bills! Especially after I buy one of them doorskins! :mad: That better be a genuine GM part and not something made in Taiwan by a 12yr old.

You'd better shop around before buying from these people. Some of these prices are outragous. I got the Lower Door Panels for my 80 from EC Parts and they were $129.99 a Pair, they want $449.00 And indicate it is only one side. So it is another 449.00 for the other.

That is real pricy, and they call it "Parts-For-Less"?.
