Thats more like a 1/5 of a door.
Yeah, but it looks cool as hell!! You wouldn't happen to have a pattern or measurements on your cuts, would you?:saw: :welder:

not only does it save me a lot of hassle trying to figure out a new latching mechanism but it also gives me an arm rest and some kind of protection for my body in the event of an accident

Where did you pick up the doors to chop? Looks pretty good I think, maybe someday if I find some cheap doors I will do up the half doors.

Looks good, I'd like to see the finished product. I like the idea of keeping the stock door closure and having the protection at your body. Nice work.

i dont get how people don't just steal your stuff when you guys have half doors or tube doors? do you put up a piece of fabric or metal to close the rest of the door/window off?

but thats a pretty cool look for the door.

I'm assuming they don't just trot around town, especially late at night w/ their 1/2 or 1/5 doors on. At least, I know I sure as shit wouldn't. Then again, you can't ever tell these days...

LOL not everybody lives in a shitass crappy city ;)

Here in texas, you get shot snooping around at night, legally. As for the day, well here in college station people drive around with their tops off their heeps and stuff all the time. Theft doesn't happen here very often. I wouldn't drive around every day like that, but every once in a while wouldn't matter much.

As for the woods/deserts, well, you try to steal and they may find you several months later in a shallow grave hehe.

Yeah sounds like austin. I have a buddy who had to WELD DOWN his amp in his jeep to avoid getting it stolen - again. Pretty funny to see really, it's going nowhere fast for sure LOL
