Is it easy to find new trim that fits the same?

I think stripper would melt the plastic, most likely. The plastic will just need scraping and sanding to take care on the intercoat peeling as much as possible.

I assumed that the design was from that era only, at least that's what I hope.

What about an acrylic stripper? I used some about 9 years ago out east. Its an ICI product, works great, doesn't sink or burn. You could actually coat the door with it, then wrap the door in poly, and come back a few hours later and take at least one later of paint off.

It worked great when I was taking layer after layer of oil off of some really old wood stair risers, spindles, and hand rails

I have used some like smart strip. Some modern plastics melt, some do not. Hard to predict. I could try that. One time, it just fused the failing paint and plastic into one congealed mass.

Its metal bondo loves metal. Push for it you can power sand future maintenance cycles.

Maybe talk to an auto body shop surely they have some filler nowadays that sands easier than bondo. Then maybe skim coat the entire door and sand. Eliminate the proud screw holes.

Fifteen years later, the doors still look great, inside and out.
I was just thinking Dean's door would look great stripped and clear-coated!

I was under the impression that they dated from when some of the first VOC regs came into play. That led to a lot of compatibility problems. You see cars and trucks from that same era with widespread intercoat failure.

I always figured it was an alkyd that was incompatible with galvanized (saponification reaction between the galvanized and the alkyd primer).

I had one of those. It was an early 90s GMC Jimmy and 40% of the paint peeled down to the primer. I really wasn't to happy with the depreciation because of it. But then I lucked out when it was stolen when I valet parked it. Allstate asked me all sorts of questions about the shape it was in to value it, but never asked about the paint job. Got WAY more for it than I could have hoped to sell it for.

That sounds about right. We saw lots of the Chevy W/Ts that suffered the same fate.

A good friend calls that paint job his anti-theft paint job. I guess it doesn't work as well as he thought.

LOL. Actually, it was recovered 35 days later in a federal drug bust. By that time the insurance company had already settled with me and it was all there's.
