Need A GENESIS Back Door

Any of you going to salvage yards in the South East it would be a big help if you find me an International Genesis (99 +-)back door. It is flat and measures 54-1/4" x 37". I've come up empty handed so far and it's really one of the important next steps in my build.

Well that sucked. I'm heading up to New England for the weekend and finally found a place late last night in Maryland that might have a door. Called this morning to see if they did. He said he probably had an AmTran or 2 and would look for a door. They are normally open on Sat. I told him if he had one I could leave at 8pm and be at his place at 8am when they open. Are you going to be open tomorrow. No, it's a holiday and they are leaving out early today. I said I could swing back through on Monday on my return trip. Nope, not opening till Tues. Then he said if he found one he was sure someone could meet in the morning to take my money. That's great, how much are we talking? $500, sold one for a bus last week for that. Sorry for that price don't even bother looking. Back to the search. That was RL Jackson in Port Deposit, Md.
Anyone know of any other salvage operations up the east coast? N.C., Va., Md., Pa.?

Any One Coming South Through Va.?

I found a door in Ruckersville, decent price, but not cost effective to go get it. Anyone that might be coming south I could cover your costs to pick it up.

Found a door today an hour away from the shop. It's not perfect because it is 3" narrower, but I can work with that. Has a piano hinge that I like so may change the other hinge to match. Only had to give $100 for it. Now I can start some progress on the build.

Alright, found me another correct door, 40 miles from the shop. $100. Pick it up tomorrow.
The green door won't work due to being 3" narrower and wouldn't look right. The hinge design would not be compatible with the bus door frame. So had to go with a stock door.

Man that's pretty darn nice!
Hard to find bus body parts. Even harder to find em less than 50 miles away.
