    Complete replacement door advice

    Hi,

    I need to remove and replace my wifes passenger side front door (5 dr car) as it is all bashed up.

    Are there any articles, advice etc that you could point me in the direction of? I have been browsing the site for a while but have not come across much.

    Main points I am considering are:

    1. Special punch required to remove hinge pins?
    2. Might need to swop the glass over (ours is tinted), any major hurdles with electric windows?
    3. Might need to swop the outer door handle over as ours is painted.
    4. Might need to refit our current door card (so it all matches) any issues here?
    5. Any likelihood new door wont fit right as hinges are non-adjustable?
    6. Best colour match. I have my paint code, but there appears to be many different silvers out there...

    Cheers all.

    more advice

    Thanks for the tip. Trying to work out how to get a punch into the top hinge as the top part of the door bends round and covers where I want to get in...
