XJ Door Fell off!

1995 2 Door Sport - and I know that the doors are a known issue for some XJ's out there. The hinge weld on my passenger door was coming free and before I could get that fixed the entire door fell off in my hand. I was able to put the door back into position and close it but now it won't open at all. I think the latch is stuck.

Anyways, how much should I expect to pay a body shop to take the door off, address whatever's wrong with the latch now, and weld the hinge back to the frame?

I don't have the ability to do this myself otherwise I would love too...

Get the door off yourself and have a local welder weld the hinges back up. Should be much cheaper than a body shop.

Where are you located? Can't see on the mobile app.
