    Guys,
    Some of you will know that I've been looking round for a passenger door for a 76 bay. So far I've been unsuccessful in getting hold of a good straight door with minimal rust. As a result I'm thinking of reskinning my damaged door which was in superb condition prior to a relatively minor nearside front corner prang. The door inner frame has almost no damage so i can use the drivers side door as a datum to get it back very close to OEM. I understand it will be a bit of a mess about but providing the after market skins are of a "reasonable" standard with a bit of time and effort i should be able to end up with a good rust free useable door.
    I know the hinges changed around 75 but just wanted to check that if i can get hold of a new skin that the handle will be in the correct position as I'm sure i've read somewhere that at some point there was a change.
    Anyone confirm or exclude this?
    Also even getting a skin at the moment over here in Australia is hardwork but i may be able to get an IGP one from the uk, i know the klokks are to be avoided but advice on any others that are either good or bad plus where i might get one would be great,

    Cheers people

    Mr H
