I'm sorry, which style do you need?
In the back of my brain I seem to recall that being discussed on here. You know people do it all the time transforming 49-53's into 48's...
Have you tried a search of these forums? Or on ?

Superfly, its been discussed here fairly often so a search should turn something up.....but I can tell you the general consenus is that its better to find a good door like you want. Then sell your old one get some money back... or advertise what you want. Someone may be wanting to go the oposite way and you can do a swap.

Well i tore down the doors today an found out what is what.

I dontthink it will be to hard of a job the donar door needs some metal removed and a screw hole added and that is about it I think

I wish i could find a good door local it would save time and money.

Hell 2 good doors would be really nice LOL
