ST door repaint

Seeing a little corrosion on my ST doors, not only in the usual corners but also the white stuff on the bottom of the outside.

Can I just pull them off and take them to a local body shop expecting them to repair and repaint to match, or am I asking too much of a standard shop?

Thanks

Joe

Problem is most probably in the door frame. Have you pulled the door cards off to see how the inside of the door looks?

Thanks, if that's the case, I will let it go for a bit, and get new doors. Inside of the doors aren't too bad yet.
