WTB International Rear Door

Looking for a replacement rear emergency door for my 99 Genesis AmTran FE. It is completely flat, unlike BB or Thomas FE rear doors. I believe the measurements are 53.25 x 47, I'll check.

Don't know how many years before or after would work, ut matching the one in my pic and the measurements should match up something.

The e-door on my Thomas is COMPLETELY flat. Again, o1marc, you are mistaken.

You mean on your RE? Reread my post and tell me who's mistaken? Should I have posted the part number for my door so as not to confuse you? You seem to just be stirring the pot tonight, why is that?

bump to try and get some help. Looks like finding one of these is like finding Hens Teeth. I hate to stall my project at the get go due to not finding the important part. Any salvage yards on the East coast?

Finding bus body parts is tough. I tried just getting a new door seal for a 1998 bus and was told by the builder they're obsolete. Damn proprietary stuff.

You'll probably have an easier time just fabricating one.

Another place suggested the same thing and went on about how it's just flat sheet metal. Well yes, except the window recesses which makes fabbing on a bit more difficult. Looks like I'll be buying that flange tool. Gonna go look at the other door now to see what's involved in fabbing a new one. Finding replacement glass will be just as hard to find.

Just stick a generic used rv window on your fabbed up door. Then you can even have a screen.

Whats wrong with your door? Damaged? might be repairable. Some doors just might have some type of part number on it. The manufacturer might help in interchanging it to other model buses. While my bus is a conventional, the rear e exit is from an re bus.

Mine is not damaged. I'm converting to double, van type doors. Seems my bus was right around when International was going through changes and they tell me parts list and what have you were on paper and not the computer till later, so trying to find a door was going to be slim to impossible. There's gotta be one out there somewhere nearby. I'm looking at an RV this at $1000OBO, and has many of what I need including a generator and switches and, well everything in an RV. They are not answering their messages for days now. Lots of windows in it I could use for the door or elsewhere.

If you are talking about barn doors, You will find these a lot on military spec buses. Check military auctions or get in with the repair depot of your local military base. They may have parts manifests for these.
