|15/02/2005 22:59:57||Senor Burt||I'm almost certain you can't get new doors any more. I'm sure one of the companies on the links page could find you a good used one. They are the same for all model years. As the rust is on the edge of the door, it may be possible to weld it up.|
|16/02/2005 08:00:28||Richard||I think repairing the old one will be a lot easier. Good second hand doors are very hard to find, most will need some work and then you have to prep and spray the whole thing. If the damage is on the door frame you should be able to repair this without damaging the paint on the outer skin.|
|16/02/2005 11:33:15||helen||thanks guys the area around the bottom door hinge on the door has rusted through, so its definatly a welding job. do any of you know where i can get a new armrest/doorhandle?|

|23/02/2005 15:33:58||jonny||What you can do and I have done this on mine, is fabricate two steel plates, I used stainless which you put either side of the door on the inside of the big nuts on the hinge, you then drill it and bolt with small bolts then tighten up your big door hinge nuts, if you try and shape the front side to sit tight to the door skin it works well, hope that makes sense, if you have not found a door handle/arm rest yet, email me your address and I will send you one.
|23/02/2005 15:35:03||jonny||Sorry, should have said only armrest I have are the black rubber ones taken from later cars, are these the same as used in 1967?.
|25/02/2005 18:19:01||Alistair||No, the early ones are hard platsic (grey I think) with a black rubber insert??|
|01/03/2005 16:26:18||helen||thanks for all the feedback and help guys, my little green machine is going in next week for some TLC . my mate is going to patch/weld the hing point inside the door. If it is worse that ecpected i might give you a call cassie. Jonny, i bouight two arm rests of ebay (two stroke ones ) but these are not right.. the ones im looking for are black plastic base with a black padded vinal top half. are these what you meant ? I'm also looking for one new rear mud flap with the saab plane logo on it... any ideas where i can find one?
thanks again helen

|02/03/2005 12:41:48||Andrew||I've definitely seen new mudflaps advertised on one of the links from here (I think) alongside pedal rubbers, etc. Sorry can't remember which site it was. Postage for something as light as mudflaps shouldn't be that much from Sweden|
