crolison's cheap ass tube doors

Well i wanted tube doors, and figured i could make some cheap ones that dont look too much like ass.

Took the doors off and notched to make doors easier to take off and put back on.





Very nice



Picked up some steel at the scrap yard today.



Making mounting plates.





Pretty much overall what they will be like.




So far I have $25 into them.

Just have to clean up, paint and mount my mirrors.

I'd like to thank Dave (davestaco) for welding these bad boys up today.
