    <font color=blue>I cut the outer panel, now I need to cut the inner panel to match which is proving to be more difficult than I though. I may put a little more metal back in the bottom, I gotta test fit this one and see how I like it first.</font color=blue>

    <font color=blue>I'm going for something like on early broncos. The ones that came with the soft top and doors (roadster package?) had fiberglass inserts in the door openings. Take a look at this.

    That looks really good, I'm interested to see the finished product. I was wondering how the open door thing would be done on our trucks...that is certainly one of the most visually pleasing alternatives.

    1970 GMC Jimmy 502HO/SM465/NP205 doesn't run just yet!

    <font color=blue>This wont open or close so I'm not woried about how much strength it has. I'm going to cut the windowframes off them when I'm done and build soft doors to go in them. I still have a lot of work left so it'll be a while. Heres a drawing to show what I'm trying to do here.
