So I have a 93 GL 1500 A with paint code R176C, Candy Spectra Red I think. I need new doors for rear pockets and unfortunately have to buy the doors and the pockets since the little tabs are broke on the pockets. Should I order the Cosmopolitan Grey ones? The ones I have seem grey but the speaker covers are black. What would the other color option be? On Western Honda site it shows a type 1 or a cosmopolitan grey, any ideas on this? I sure as hell am not happy about spending almost $300 bucks on these but I want my bike to look good and be somewhat original spec. I also have to buy a new right pocket cover with lock for about $80. Any one have any good options to cover these that are functional and look good with out spending as much as a set of tires cost?

According to the fiche on Honda Online Parts, that's correct. On my 93 whichI had, that was the color of the dark plastic. Now, if you have an SE, there were 2 choices, but I believe one of them is a brownish color. But that "black" looking insert colors and dash panels and speaker suround on the 1500As was Cosmopolitian Grey. Just a lighter shade of black.:smiler:

Please can someone help me figure out which ones to order. I would guess a left and a right, why would the left be more expensive?

I ordered just a left side door that already had the spring, retainer screw and latch installed. I had the broken hinge pin as well which I replaced with a bit of ingenuity.
I took a Dremel tool and made a place to JB weld in a new hinge pin, a very short 8d nail. It worked great and saved me a bunch of $$$$$! Heck, might be the new hinge pin is better than new.

I would post a picture or two but you really can't see what I did very well.

Unfortunately I have donated the doors to the road side cleanup crew in Utah so I need new ones. I am torn, although the repair method with the "living Hinge" looks pretty good if I can get it all nice and straight, but I am a bit concerned about buying new doors, drilling wholes in my pockets and new doors and hoping I get it neat and pretty. If not then I would be buying 2 more doors and both pockets because that look would be unacceptable. There is a used right side on Ebay but the bid is $32 plus $12 shipping and has 3 days left. I bet it will go to $60 or more so at that point I might as well buy new. I also figure the used one 19 years old as well and may break just as quick.
