    My new tube doors with PIC\'S!!

    I bought Laketex's last set of tube doors as an unassembled kit a while back. They showed up recently and I finally got a chance to build them.

    I did make a few changes and modifications to suit my own tastes and needs...plus I painted them a nice bling bling red.

    Check em out...

    I will be adding a mirror or two yet...just haven't found a set I like yet.

    Bryan sold me the unassembled doors for $55. It was their last set. From there I added the upper bar and modified the hinge mounting area plus paint. I spent about 10 hours on em.../forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    This is the door Bryan sold originally.

    They look good! I like the added bar at the top!

    So how did you split up your CK5 time and fab time or did you weld them up at work? /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Re: My new tube doors with PIC\'S!!

    I've been spending as much free time as I have working on the truck trying to get ready for Moab. I work afternoons which leaves me lots of "CK5" time during the day while I take care of the kids...

    Weekends I try and get stuff done on the truck./forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif October is coming way too fast!!!/forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Re: My new tube doors with PIC\'S!!

    I like the way you move added the bar to connect to your hinge, I have a extra set of doors for my truck that I'm going to cut up and finish off so they will cover about the same area as yours do, keeping the hinge and striker... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Re: My new tube doors with PIC\'S!!

    Grab handle (not really a smart place for your hand though) and mostly a place to mount mirror's when I find a set I like. I like the look of the upper bars as well and to me that is also important.

    It does complete the look of the door. Fills it in a bit more, looks sharp.

    I thought this(ORD Buggy) was a pretty trick idea, over-lapping bars. Provideing a grab handle of sorts and some knuckle protection at the sametime.

    Sorry for the wait man, I'll be tearing into the truck shortly so I'll be in the shop anyway. I should have yours framed out and Pope's done within a week.

    *psshhhh* yeah right, I'm so worthless, but I'll try.... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
