    Default wrecker cxs ?? new doors ??

    hello my esteemed and helpful friends,

    my 79 cx is in desperate need of some rust repair on the passenger side door, but i don't know whether it would be cheaper to simply acquire another intact door and replace the whole thing. however, i don't know where to look for wrecker cars, so if any of you have any leads you can put me on to that'd be great !!

    haven't found much in the way of wrecker cx cars online - perhaps i'm just looking in the wrong places ??

    kind regards and many thanks,

    max.

    Good CX doors are usually available in the same aisle as rocking horse poo and kept election promises.

    Rustless CX doors would be a different proposition I would say. Most of them had the bottom rusted out of them 20 years ago.

    Cheers, Ken

    it depends... some of the eariler ones don't have the rubber strip. I think the local importers must have fitted them .................. with self tappers straight through the door skin! They rust by design

    Probably best to repair the doors you have if the rust is mainly confined to the lower door skins.

    Front doors can also rust badly in the multiple skin area between the hinges, so check any substitute there as well.
