    here are some options
    1 get a new door
    2 get a door skin
    3 repair remove original skin and repair and reinstall.
    if you don't have any metal skills number one is your best option.
    if i was to do option 2 i would etch and paint inside of door so it doesn't rust more..
    if it is option 3 welcome to my world.....

    Look for another door from a dry state,canada also a good place to find decent sheetmetal,you will probably agree with option# 1 when you strip the Door to bare metal.

    I definitely want to get a new door or one in much better condition. But I don't have a lot of money. and i haven't had much luck finding a door for a 54 Chev hardtop. But thank you very much I'm definitely going to take in consideration you options and go from there.
    Thanks again
