1. Fix the door handle that is broke?
2. Fix the door hinges, can I just replace the pins and bushings?
3. Replace the mirrors, the glass is missing on both sides?

1) Skin the door, change the handle. 45 minutes.

2) Get bushings and pins for a 1st gen S-10 P/U from the dealer - shorten the upper pin by about 1/2" (measure yours first) to clear one of the Torx door skin fasteners. Allow yourself a good day if you haven't done it before.

3) Check the "Help!" rack at your local auto parts place. There's replacement mirrors there (same mirrors for certain years of F-bodies). Maybe 5 min's each side.

The door handle should not be too bad, I'll suggest getting the Chilton manual. You'll need not remove the door panell and the rest should be pretty straight forward.

The door hinge, depends on how bad they are, if is just the pins and bushings is not bad, but if the pins have "oblong" (spelling?) the hinge, you would need to drill the hinge and put a "bushing" there, like the inner part of the hinge. Then you would have 4 bushings per hinge not 2. I had to do that to my drivers door which was pretty bad but now it closes perfect. BTW for the hinge repair I had to take off my door to be able to remove the upper hinge.
Be really carefull if you remove the door, because it's much heavier than it looks.
try this link is was very helpfull to me http://spacecoastfieros.com/tech/hinge/index.html

Ya I found it and if that was the only thing I was going to buy it would have saved me $2.00. But I had to get alot of things from fierostore.com , I ended up getting just under $200 in misc. things. but thanks for the input.
