    Well I did a search for half doors, and ended finding a post, but all of the pictures in the post were little red x's. So i was hoping that you guys could help me out by posting pictures of your half doors, or other full size half doors. I appreciate the help. Thanks.

    Those all are given me some good ideas. How much time do you guys have tied up in the fab process of your doors, and do you guys use any structural supports between the two door skins? Thanks for the pics.

    I have several hours in each door .I boxed out the bottom of the opening with 3/4 inch square tubing and welder diamond plate on it.I ran heavy guage sheet metal up both sides.I filled the window track in with a piece flat bar and bondo.I also welded dp on the out side bottom for protection.I think I have some more door pics on my webshots.I need to update it with some more recent pics

    Well, mine aren't remotely as nice as 82dieselburb's ... wow... somebody can WELD!

    but here they is. I just put a piece of diamond tread across the gap horizontally, and then sheet metal along the vertical and top edges, if that makes sense. They have a little give, but not much. I chose to keep them pretty high, which in retrospect looks funny ... but still feels like you're doorless at 70MPH! :blush:

    No sturctural support (as seen in the photo), and about 2 hrs in both doors... and that included time to stop and drink several frosty cold beverages along the way

    Those doors do look like they have some serious time in them 82dieselburb, and they look pretty awesome. And the others also look good too. Thanks for the pics, and if any one has any more please post them up. Thanks.

    my 2 cent would to be to mimic the missouri offroad ones those look nice and keep ur locks if that matters. base some off those or 82dieselburbs. both are quality setups
