I need to replace my driver door & am trying to avoid paintwork since my E is Nighthawk Black Pearl & matching pearl colors is difficult.......so in my search for a used door, I want to be sure it's not the "wrong" black.... thanks, Pat

There have been two.

Nighthawk Black Pearl (NBP)
Crystal Black Pearl (CBP)

But NBP has been around the longest and I think CBP is an SC only color beginning in '08 or '09 so will be harder to find.

Pat, how much did the door cost you? I would love to replace both of my doors instead of getting them repainted. So many freakin' door dings and scratches, etc. It would be simpler to just swap the door shells out and put my interior and glass back in.

What are the details on this. Also, what's the story with the nails.

Larry, the door was $500 complete....glass, door panel, power motor etc... It was only missing the mirror.... pretty good deal considering it's in perfect shape & matching color, black was tough to find in good shape.....I've seem prices fro $325 - $750+ for the doors though.

THANKS to everyone who chimed in here.......I swapped the door of last night, color match is perfect & everything fits good as new....I'm actually pretty impressed with Honda's paint quality/color consistency since my E & the replacement door E's vin numbers were 12,000 units apart....

Lucky for me, I was able to source an OEM door in my same color in excellent shape....

I'll post up some pics tonight of the E with no door.........made the gears start turning in my head........hahahaha. :D
