In the process of restoring my 87 442. The doors are not great so I am looking to either pick up a couple in a junk yard or buy new aftermarket doors. I have heard good things about the quality of Goodmarks aftermarket doors. I used there floors and was impressed by the gauge of metal and accuracy in the part. My question to all of you is, has anyone used their aftermarket door "shell"? and if so, is it a pain in the *ss to swap out all the power window components from the original door to the new one?

Thanks all.

I used aftermarket door on my malibu. First i will say if your having them shipped be prepared to send them back as i went through 2 sets as they were damaged badly. Other then that they fit well. All my window regulators fit well as well as the handels and door latch. I did have to drill holes for the outer window felt. I also have put a set on a 87 grand national. Also fit well with minor adjustments. I was also concerned about how the internals would fit but honestly on both cars i had minor issues.

Try to find a Goodmark dealer close enough to you so you can inspect them when they come in. I have one less than a 1/2 hour from home for example.

If you can wait til swap meet season, you can ask a vendor that will be at a swap meet that carries them to bring them to the meet and pick them up. They will usually gladly bring them since it is a guaranteed sale. I did that with the cowl hood on my El Camino. I picked it up at Carlisle and inspected it before taking it.

Quality originals will always be better than repops in most ways, other than being able to find that quality original. Repop parts typically need some tweaking for fitment, but this can be far better than trying to patch a bad part.
