    Need help with doors


    I asked this question a couple of weeks ago, but didn't get a response. Perhaps if I am a little clearer, someone will understand what I am talking about

    I am restoring my '73 911S targa. My body guy says that I should get a new door as the bottom of my door is a little too rusty to repair. For some reason he isn't too keen on patching it.

    Is there a big difference between a door out of an '80+ 911 and my '73? He offered me a decent '69 door, but it doesn't have a door beam. With huge SUVs all over the road, I really don't want to take a chance on a safety item, even though their bumpers are likely to go right over the door in an accident.

    So would anyone notice that my door is from a late model 911 rather than an early one?

    The overall shape and fit is the same up to and including the 993. There are minor differences in the pressing where the interior trim fits and at the rear of the door the early cars have 2 individual holes with rubber grommets to access the top frame mount (not relevant in a Targa of course) and the later doors (SC onwards?) have an oval slot

    anti-crush beam makes late 73 or 74 and on doors safer and heavier; otherwise no
