    Wondering if any company has ever sold, or if anyone has ever seen
    early "bronco style" half doors for the first gen. blazer?
    the solid, windowless v grooved style...... or any full replacement fiberglass door?
    I've been looking for a while with no luck... I could have sworn I saw someone with them years & years ago

    I've got a 75' k-5 and ended up making a set of metal half doors. They still open like full doors but there is only about a third of the door

    Any pix?
    I was going through some old posts and came across an interesting one from back in 2000

    I guess someone had contacted the guy's at glassworks unlimited in Huntington Beach about making these things. they said they would do it, but needed a vehicle to do all of the mock up work.

    I live in Huntington about 5 min from there shop... I emailed them and I'm going to call tomorrow.. they can use my truck for as long as it takes
    these guy's make top quality race panels.... i've bought a few set's of fenders from them over the years for my old toyota and my F-150 and was very happy.

    I'm mainly interested in the one peice fiberglass insert style... i'm not real concerned if it opens or not.

    they can be reached @ www.glassworksunlimited.com.

    maybe if enough people contacted them about these things they might be a little more inclined to get the ball rolling :)

    I think the reason you don't see them more often is because once someone decides to pull the doors for better visibility, they just run doorless, or build a simple set of tube doors instead. Less work, and most guys can build those themselves.

    Also....and probably MORE important, those cutout doors have a very strong association with the early Broncos. I think most of us already have enough trouble getting people to call our vehicles Blazers instead of Broncos. Putting a set of those doors on is going to make our jobs even tougher.... :D
