    Country Girl,
    A picture of the piece you're looking for might help the search, or ideas about a fix. I, for one, have no idea what this "door post" looks like (a door post sounds like an integral part of the door, forming the window surround).

    We did have someone try and weld it, NOT. It's cracked right in half so we thought it would be the good 50, but of course it's the bad 50. I may let you have a shot at it though. I'm guessing we should have sent the Crown with the part. LOL Is a Kirkrod a special kind of welding rod or part of the humor? Thanks so much for the offer!

    Yes it does form the window surround. Thanks again!

    But it's not a structural piece, right? Just pot metal trim to seperate the glass and add a chrome accent? Not a big deal, I'm probably the only one who does not understand the part you're describing.
