FINISHED PICS BELOW!!!
I have searched and looked through every post so far on 1/2 doors but want to gather as many pics as possible before I chop them up so I can decide which cut I like the most. How many of you went to the side impact beam and stopped? Also How did you do the latch/handle? I would love any/all pics and advice you can give me.
Thanks so much,
Jamie

When I get mine I am going to try and maintain the stock setup and just cut the metal down to that point. It may turn out different when I finally get the doors and tear in to them.

Thought i'd post some progress pics up of my doors-
I am almost done w/the 1st one......jesus and I have over 30hrs in it already.
They are just primer white for now, I am going to color match them tommorow. The black is similar to rhino/linex type stuff.

Lol thanks for the compliments guys. I figured I'd keep the handle just to cut down on the headaches these doors are already giving me. I don't ever want to weld sheetmetal again lol.......but now that I know how to do it so well I am itching to bob the bed :saw:

Yeah I am going to put a 5.25" speaker in there. I thought about doing a recessed cubby hole but I just got way too sick of messing w/sheetmetal. Maybe I'll put a maglite mount on it or something though. I am really digging how light they are, probably 1/2 the weight of my regular doors and easy to throw around.

As promised, pics. Sorry none on the truck, I am saving those until I am totally done with both doors-
Here is drivers door done. I need to press in my weather stripping on the top where my "window" is lol. I also need to add my custom "taco" emblem. Also need to touch up that white tape line w/ some black so smooth the appearance out. That is 2 coats color 2 coats clear. I figure good enough for 1/2 doors. The black you see on the inner "trim panel" is badass, it is damn near like line-x and looks alot better in real life then pictures are doing it justice.


I started on the other one today.....these are so damn tweaked from being rolled over I almost gave up on this one but managed eventually to make it work.


Please ignore the poor white trash garage motif I have going on right now lol.
