If you end up just framing up your own replacement, which might be easier than you think...

IBP, International Bus Parts in Florida will be able to make you skins that match your fluting.

Be sure to tell them the busnut community sent you.

happy coaching!

I have a MC 9 door on front bay drivers side PO put on but it has no hinge. He turned the rod assembly upside down and it latches fine but folds down instead of up like the others. Mine is a 5C and the stainless line don't match either. But hey it works and looks decent.

  From everything I can see or tell, the MC7 uses the same latch and the same skin. If you can cut one down no one could likely tell unless they saw the inside.

  Best would absolutely be a 5 door, but if they want an arm and two legs, or its unobtanium...

Hi Steve-- I also have a MCI 5b and I have some pieces left over from when I fixed up my bay doors. I believe you live in southern US, I live in Alberta, Canada so the shipping might be hard to swallow. You will need to do some aluminum welding to repair some of these parts. Open/close handle has a crack. I have no full piece usable skin. In all honesty if you can find skin profile on other model of bus that matches, cut door down. I have a handle and a few other odds you can have if you pay shipping. If you go to metal hinges you need to make an offset in hinge to allow for moulding above bay doors

Easter's has hundreds of old buses in the back so they likely have an MC-5, but I have heard they don't like to sell parts off their buses.  I do know from first hand experience that they will pull parts off their old buses to fix a bus they are selling.
