Hello to all of you, I am new here. I was desperate looking for a place last this to ask for suggestions, ideas and learn more about the Nissan Armada. I own two Nissan Armada a 2004 LE full loaded and a 2005 SE offroad. My 2004 LE was involved in accident and I have to replace all the doors. Questions are: I found a total BURN ARMADA in which all the doors are burn (plastic, rubbers, wires, etc.) but metal itself is looks good. It is possible to use :hi: d a Burn Door? how difficult is to put everything from the damage door into the Burn Doors? Do any of you have a way to put everything that should be inside the door?
Please let me know.
Thank you to all of you for taking the change to read this and for your help and cooperation.

ps: later on I will ask more questions and ask for more suggestions.

If you can strip the down to the metal by dipping, etc, reprime, add the panels, etc. it "may" be cheaper. The problem is heat may have warped the metal, its a lot of labor cost, and the panels are corrosion treated before they are welded together. It will be hard to get the corrosion coating into the seams properly.

Might work, but by the time you factor in the extra labor cost, painting, etc. it may be more. Try this for parts. ;)

No way would I use doors from a burned vehicle (or any other parts). The structure of the metal has been changed, they will rust easily, they will be warped, everything negative.

I agree 100%. I do not recommend using any part of the burnt vehicle. The structure has changed. You would never know if the door would hold you for another impact.

Burn Armada Totaly

All metal looks burn, if the body shop take their time to do a nice job, can all the burns parts be ok? like the doors and fender and left quarter panel?

please advise?
Thanks.

How did it burn? Was it pulling a trailer with faulty wiring??? LOL

I’m with most that have replied. I would not use the doors.

I agree. If the fire was hot enough, it could have changed the temper, etc. of the steel. Get new ones or try a search for used ones. The link I posted had several in perfect shape in different paint colors. You might get lucky and not even need to paint. ;)
