Doors can be repaired. Doors are hard to find and can cost a great deal of money. You do not say what is wrong with your door, but I will guess that it is bent and does not seal well. Try the search function on the blue bar at the top of the page. A few mambers have repaired their doors and documented the proccess.

Post some photos. Don't know how yet - someone will help out. There is a search function on the blue line above. It will be your window to a whole list of answers. Type in some key words like "photo" and "post" and you wll find that ths has been responded to before much better than I can explain. Don't be scared to ask something - we enjoy learning from one another.

The door may not be as bad as you think - photos will allow these guys on the Forums to come up with a plan to get the door fixed.

If it is sprung or bent, that can sometimes be fixed. I remember seeing several threads here regarding this. But do post a picture of your existing door. Someone may have a solution. Original parts for these old Tradewinds are hard to come by. I've been looking for a front window frame for over a year.
