Door skins

Can anyone tell me how an Ambassador and a Princess rear door skin differ. They are different part numbers...

I suspect you will be the one giving us the definitive answer to this question, Martin, as you have examples of both (albeit fitted to cars) in your garage! :lol:

However, if I was to have a semi-educated guess, I would say the difference relates to the slightly different shape of the upper door/window frame between Princess and Ambassador at the quarterlight end. There is likely to be a minor detail difference in the skin to accommodate this.

They both rust equally.
