MK2 2 door doors:unobtainium?

there is a slim chance I may have found a 2 door, Mk 2  escort, albeit, minus any doors.
The plan might be to move on my 4 door, and end up being able to do the 'car of my missspent youth'
actually, no, just a recreation of dad's  rally pack.
However, the potential seller did say that doors are pretty hard to come buy, and it might be why he has stalled the project so far.
Before things go any further, if they do, what do you guys think?
I would have expected at least door skins to be available, and would give reskinning a go, it thats that it took.
Of course you still need the door shells to start from.
Any ideas, otherwise the 4 door remains complete and runnign, just yet to be stripped to begin the whole resto process..
TIA

    immaculate original doors are hard to come by just like all escort panels. they are a 40 year old car now... 
    panels and doors come up a bit on Gumtree. just keep an eye out. all depends how much work you want to do to get them looking good.
    shouldn't be too hard to get some.
     
    or buy some remanufactured ones. not cheap, and postage might be a killer.

    Sounds like theyre rare as Capri Mk1 Front Guards, whereas Capri doors are easier maybe coz there was never a 4 door Capri !
    If you keep an eye out for Capri oem steel Guards L&R, I'll see what I can do for you re Esky 2 door doors
    I'm in Melbourne---------where are you Deano ?

    I'm in Geelong.
    I have only ever seen one Capri guard, which was around 20 years ago, when I was doing mine up.
    I bought it for about $30 from memory.
     
    Escort/Capri, all becoming harder.
     
    Great link ado, watch that car go quicker than a 24 pack of Sorbent
