    anybody replace a door?

    So I went to do the window motor last Friday and whoever owned the car before me completley effed the door panel that the window assemble attaches to. Long story short it'd be in my best interest to get a door that matches my car because my driver door has a few nasty gouges in it and replacing the whole door would help solve that issue. Has anyone taken these doors off or a car door for that matter? I'm not mechanically stupid but I'd like to know if I'm in for a pain in the ass

    I would like to know the answer also.

    I have a set of matching doors with better glass and better window motors and guides. Curious if it would be easier to change the glass, motors, guides, and fix paint issues or just change the door.


    But I'm still not sure what any of this has to do with Nitrous

    sounds easy enough, but getting all the wiring out is going to be a pita
