Might be worth trying Fairmile Restorations who fabricate van & pick up panels: http://fairmilerestorations.co.uk/

I believe you can only get the lower repair sections for the van type doors, these go up about 6' from the base.

there are fibreglass door skins for 2 door cars now. I wonder if they could be cut down at the back to fit or whether they are of different proportions.

I tried to get the Mini Door Company interested in doing Minor doors too - but they said they had enough business already with Minis. Seems to me there is a good business opportunity here for someone to commission skins and offer an exchange reconditioned door service.

Im pretty sure Minor Developments do an exchange door, they usually have a few at the national around £150 each.

As far as I know, no one does a skin for the shorter doors. So its a case of repairing what you have or having it repaired. Depends on the door but folk seem to charge from £75 upwards to repar your own doors if you don't fancy it yourself.
Two door doors, yes, new skins £159 from ESM etc.

In theory you could trim down a 2 dr skin, but the handle recess will be in the wrong place for this to be an easy job...

Well spotted Iain, I had a look and couldn't see them either.

There seems to be something odd about the ESM website, items don't always appear when one looks for them.

How odd -I looked under 'panels' and nothing there..... Gives me hope for my spare doors being repaired! Has anyone used them - are they 'ok' ??
