About a year ago, my 79 Gen1 Brat got t-boned in a hit and run, and I have slowly been doing the body work to get it back on the road.   The drivers door is destroyed, so I have to find a replacement.  

 

A DL popped up locally and I was thinking about getting it to use for parts for my BRAT, but wasn't sure if the front doors from a DL are the same as the BRAT  anyone know?   

 

Here are pictures of the DL and my BRAT

BRAT (Brumby) doors are longer than 4 door sedan and wagons, You can use doors from coupes, hardtops and 2 door sedans.

You'll need your old Brat glass though.

It's not that hard to swap it.

It would be a shame to cut that sedan, looks like it just needs a buff.

Brett,

 

I have a coupe door from a 77 2 door shell I'm scrapping.  Its pretty rusty but if you can do bodywork maybe it can be fixed. Its yours if you want it.  I'm in Omaha. 

 

Did you happen to go look at that sedan? It's tempting if it doesn't have rust.  I have everything to swap in for an automatic.
