Give your local junk yard a try might find an orange fit for parts.

Picture please!!
California yards may have those but your delivery charge will be comparable to the cost of new door (shell)
Plus:
  • Any car that enters low end junk yard (like PYP) is treated like a scrap, so every body part will have dents, dings and scratches (meas you'll have to paint it anyways, unless your car looks like mine )
  • Door panel can be damaged during transportation/delivery
  • You will have to fit your "new ""used" door to the frame using sledge and old phone book (yes, I know what I'm talking about!); been there done that
  • the color will almost always mismatch, unless its black or white, therefore, if you want good looking results, paint job is a must (used door is a good choice either for car that is either less than 5 years of age or over than 20 years of age)
So, depending how badly damaged is the door, your choices are:
  • replace door skin and have a shop paint it
  • order door online from full service wrecking yard and have body shop finish the job
  • file insurance claim and let it deal with the rest (this is why I still carry full coverage)
  • if damage is only cosmetic, live with it!
A door on my local PYP costs $45 plus taxes + freight cost is for oversize item + labor to install and adjust =$$$
PS: 90% of this forum users are ordinary drivers, with apprentice car repair levels, or copy and paste experts who never done anything they are trying to teach other people
