Hi all,

I've been searching for a pair of full doors for a long time and they all seem to be around $800 with shipping. I found this pair with rust near me and am going to pick them up tomorrow for $300. My question is, is the rust beyond repair? I'm going to repaint the doors anyway to moss green. I'm not too familar working with rust but would appreciate hearing your opinion.

Can't really tell without taking off the door panels and checking out the insides of the doors and everything.

Okay, thanks all. I'll inspect them closer tomorrow to see how bad it is. As long as the insides are good I'll buy them.

Rust in the bottom can be fixed if it's no worse than what you have on that door frame. Clean it up with a wire wheel an treat it. Then put a heavy coat of fluid Film inside the door (tape off drain holes) and let it creep deeply into the pinch seam for a few days then remove the tape. $300 is a heck of a deal. Especially if they match your paint!👍
