.....the door was replaced just over a year ago. Very good shape everything else is pretty rusty.... if you took the glass out, probably still pricey to ship?

What big city are you close to? I have a friend that goes to Canada several times a year from Maine.

Brampton or Mississauga Ontario....work in Mississauga [HWY 410 & HWY 401 area], drive through Brampton along the way. I'm 45 min north of Mississauga if that helps.

This is what it is, pics aren't great but it gives you an idea. Hinges, door handle, hardware is all original and pretty rusty.

I asked my buddy if he ever gets by there. He said he has gone through there but not often. He says it is about 12 hours from him. I still want to try to make this work.

Are you in a panic for this? I'm hopin' by the end of the season I've got the door conversion done. Working a couple of jobs eats up a little time, might be spring. It doesn't take up a lot of space could stash it for a while....

Funny you should say that, going to do the same....that door will be to small.

So I'm safe to assume you'd like the glass, hinges, door handle etc.

Forgot to mention, the door may end up matte military green.
Thought I could get away with not painting out the SBY, wrong again....
