Well I have come to the concusion that my car HAS been in an accident. The front passenger door is the only prevelant problem. First of all, there is no VIN number on the door, the door sounds cheap and hollow when you close it, there is no clear coat on the paint under the weather stripping, every screw on the inside of the door is loose, there are cracks on the plasctic panels inside the door handle and behind the power seat controls, the clear protective cover on the inside of the door is not OEM, and on and on. So my ca HAS been in an accident! Overall though, I suppose the repair place did a pretty good job (for an auto body shop with ins. paying) on repairing. The door looks perfect inside and out for the most part (albeit the 2 small cracks on inside panel, and they don't fit right either).
Now to my question... Is there anyway I can make door sound solid again? atleast somewhat? Maybe some insulation pads on the inner door panel? It just sounds CHEAP and I don't like it. Thanks.
