Default Where can I buy a replacement door skin and door hinge?

Just as the title suggests. I'm looking to completely replace my door skin and hinge as the skin is cracking and the hinge is causing the door to hang when opening and closing the door. Both for the passenger side. PN and links are appreciated.

Thanks again!

Id just try to find another door. I just went thought this with my 98 and ended up buying one for $100. Works way better and I didnt even have to paint it.

+1 There are to many of these cars wrecked for cheap to worry about a door skin.

Ok so to update this thread I found a complete 1999 Firebird door in great shape at a local junkyard. Would it be easier to heat up the door skin and separate it from the donor door or just replace the whole door on my car? Neither are in bad condition and the donor has power windows like on mine. It's not the same color so it will need to go to paint.

You'll have to paint the door anyway, may as well just paint the donor door and save yourself the work.

The skins are removeable. They are glued to the door shell. I have two door skins in good condition from my old 1998 TA if you'd be interested in one.

Make sure whoever paints it they blend it out pretty far. White can be a pain to match sometimes.
