got into in accident and I need to replace the door.

I was quoted 1500 at one place. Anybody know of any salvage yards and places to get it repaired for a lot less?

I may be able to help you with this.

I had a 9 yr old SUV with a smashed up front fender. The 2 body shops I went to each estimated $1500. Since I just wanted to sell the car it seemed like too much of an expense.
I then received a flyer in my mail from a place that does inexpensive body painting & repair. They were unable to locate the part but said they would install and paint the fender if I could find it.

My ingenious SO found a new replacement fender on the internet; it was $221 delivered to my door.
The auto-paint shop installed and painted it for under $150 and they did a fine job. The paint matched perfectly.
I mentioned to them that I wanted to sell the car. As it turned out, during the time they had my car (one day) someone entered the shop and inquired about it. He ended up buying it from me.

If you want further info message me directly. I would use them again.

There is a place in East Tampa like 12th and 28th called Acme. Yes Acme and no Wiley Coyote doesn't run it. He's a funny little old Cuban man who does excellent work for literally a 1/3 of the price. A buddy turned me on to him a while back when I needed some body work.
