Re: Thanks. But, isn't resale better with an all new door than repaired?
The diffrence with a new door. the door has a sticker that says DOT R where as the factory door has a VIN sticker that matches the rest of your car. again if the repair is done correct the inside of your door will look factory,most car lots/dealer look for DOT R sticker/ VIN sticker as a first sign.Depending on the severaty of your repairs your door will stay on the car which keeps factory adjustment ( opening & shutting ) and also marks on the bolts .... chipped paint .....keep in mind no two doors are the same yours was made on assembly line months/years ago the new one may only be weeks old ,therefore the will have to adjust to fit could possible have wind noise.Everything goes back to good quality shop if you trust the and they are good eather way will be fine.Be sure and voice your concerns to the shop of your choice get there opinion ... depending on the amount of damage i would take repair anyday .By the way what color is your car
