    Hi!
    I would suggest new, but buy direct from the UK (someone please chime in with the link or details for that great sheet metal group through ?Huddesford Mini spares?) when you get one of the many weekend sale emails they'll send.
    Try to see if they will ship by mail instead of courier and you may save a pretty penny on the ft and the customs and duties.
    The reason I say go new is that many of the doors you'd find are so rusty on the inside that your savings aren't real once you fight all of the inner rust and do a reskin.
    Also, I heard once that you should hang new or reskinned doors on the car and very carefully get alignment correct. Then, pull it all apart and do all of your coating steps.

        British Motor Heritage Limited has the doors you are looking for.....but they are not cheap (245 pounds each!), but (again) their material is heavier than the original factory parts.
        It's all part of life's rich tapestry.

          Former member John Elmgren called me. He noticed your "wanted" posting and called me to let me know he has two good rear doors. He's on Camano Island, now, I beleive. If you're interested, email me and I can give you his number.
          The more I know about Minis, the more I know I don't know about Minis.
