Default fiberglass doors

i'm looking for some fiberglass doors to fit 62-65 chevyll nova 2 door sedan..who would be a good place to get them from..i already called glassteck and they wanted $680.00 pair..checking to see if i can get cheaper anywhere else?

i have steel ones now.they have all window regerators removed with lexan already..how close to fiberglass door weight would i be if i was to cut all the inner structure out of steel doors?i don't want to cut up to much if it won't be that much of weight change.

I bought mine from VFN for my 70 Buick GS/Skylark body. The fit on my car is awesome and took very little to mount. I used aluminum plates inside the door to make it a bit more rigid and it worked well. The ones for my car were $564 plus shipping. Be aware they charge about 30-40 bucks crating fees and I believe they truck ship them only. I drove from Pa to Illinois and picked them up a year and a half ago for cheaper that shipping. Also,I believe their doors are a Lexan use only too.They list non post doors for your car $604.00 ans with post $624.00 a pair.

The Glasstech stuff is very nice stuff. I know there's other quality 'glass stuff out there but there's some junk too. Be careful of buying cheap. You get what you pay for. Stay away from unlimited in CA.

i have vfn, and was impressed with their workmanship, i have seen some nightmare stuff, (doors) compound twist, and bow, so be careful, and good luck.

The stuff of theirs that I used seem to fit ok but the quality was horrible. There were several hours of body work involved to make it look decent. There have been other posts here and at other sites and everyone that commented that had used unlimited stuff had nothing good to say about it. The Glasstech front end, hood and scoop that I used on the Probe only need trimmed to fit and some sanding.
