    this is my first post so I am not sure if I’m
    In the right place but here goes. I have an2004 Isuzu npr with a roll up door. The wood panels on the door are falling apart. Each panel hangs on a metal panel
    Of equal size. My question is has anybody ever just removed the wood and painted the metal to look like wood instead of replacing the door?

    I've seen people paint the panels black, or the same color as the "box".

    We just purchase a new door at the local trailer dealer, and did the install ourselves-it was pretty easy. The old door was easily 25 years old and just worn out.

    Replace the door, don't try to doctor it up, by the time you spend all the time and money on trying to do that, they can replace the entire door.
