View Full Version : 83 Fuego drivers' door

After buying and nearly completing the restoration
on an 83 Fuego 1.6 Turbo, my drivers' door was hit
by a kid in a jacked-up truck who wanted to turn
right from the left side lane of a 4-lane road, and could
not see me next to him :-(

I've managed to replace glass, mirror and housing, and
find all trim, but the door itself, while still usable, is badly
rippled ("accordion-style" on the outer skin). Local body
shops want way too much to try and repair, and would
probably just fill it with Bondo at that.

If someone has a parts car with a door in good shape,
I'd be interested in talking.. I'm in Northern CA (Bay
Area). If the part is *red*, I'll be even happier, although
I do have a small amount of mixed paint left over from
its' last repaint. Might not be enough for a color change,
tho...

Hello Feugo Owner,
Try George Smith at smithgeorge@webtv.net
He is located in Northeastern Ohio, Chardon Ohio I think.
Phone 440-543-8701. Last time we spoke this past January he had two Fuego's. Good luck
