I finally replaced the door. The one from the donor car was a perfect match. Aligning the latch required a bit of guess work though, I eventually got it aligned.

*Please excuse the potato, I took this photo just before sundown last night*

So, here's what I took from the donor car:

  • Passenger Door
  • Passenger Door Glass
  • Passenger Door Window Linkage
  • Passenger Door Exterior Handle & Linkage
  • Passenger Door Interior Handle & Linkage
  • Passenger Door Lock Linkage
  • Passenger Door Latch
  • Hinge Bolts

And what I transferred over from my door:

  • Passenger Side View Mirror
  • Passenger Door Card
  • Speaker
  • Electrical Boot
  • Passenger Door Hinge
  • Passenger Door Lock
  • Passenger Door Window Winder

Transferring the lock over was incredibly annoying. I had to fish my hand into the door cavity and maneuver the linkage onto the lock without being able to see what I was doing, and don't even get me started on removing the bracket so I could pull the lock out. That was its own headache.

Here's what the door looked like before I fixed The dent:

And so this never happens again, I installed a couple of these:

They rotate 360 degrees and have a pitch to them so I may even be able to use them for towing, granted probably not very well.
