Front Drivers Door Cladding

Post by JohnM86 » Wed Jul 19, 2017 1:22 pm

I just bought a 2005 Freestyle with 150k on it from a local auction for $2100. I love it so far, it runs perfect which is surprising since it looks like it was neglected, and it sat for at least 2 years. The body is in pretty good shape except that its missing the door cladding on the drivers front door. Does anyone know where I can get a new or used one in Pueblo Gold for reasonably cheap?

That's the first place I looked, they aren't very common around here. I'm not new to the game of fixing up cars it just seems like Freestyle parts are hard to come by. There's only a one listed on eBay and its the wrong color. I was checking to see if any of you have a local junk yard that may have Freestyles sitting around. I may just go ahead and buy the silver one & get it painted. I just didn't want one of them to have fresh paint and not the rest because it still won't match like a factory painted original.

They are going to be hard to get b/c any salvage yard is not going to want to part with just that piece, they wanna sell you the whole door. That means you need one from a car with door damaged but not the cladding. I would just keep checking eBay, one will show up eventually.

You might look for other FS parts on eBay and see if they include a pic of the car. If you can see one with your part on a damaged door, you can email the seller and see if they will sell you that part.

Another resource you can try is car-part.com.

It's Norsea Blue Metallic. I emailed a couple of eBay stores earlier to see if they'd be willing to sell me just the door cladding, hopefully I'll get a hit on one of them.
