Almost Everything's Car of the Day is a 2012 Nissan Altima. We were shocked at how much damage that little tap had done. The mirror ripped a hole in the door and bent it so air & water leaked around the edges. A new mirror would not fit because of the distorted metal. The window track was also bent so the window could not be used. Both the door and mirror needed to be replaced!
We were able to find a door at a salvage yard. We took it apart, fixed some small dings and painted the interior to match the car. Then we mounted the door and painted the outside. We also blended some new paint onto the fender and the rear door so that the new paint would not look different against the older, faded paint.
