    i got a spare set of doors and want some half doors. i was wanting some pictures to go by and my main question is how do you work around the latch. do you just have to cut around it or is there an easy way to make a new one. any info is appreciated.
    thanks

    it really depends on how low you wnt to go. if you want to go low enough to see but still ahve protection from branches and a lttle mud, then you cn just take the latch mechanism and re-locate it lower on the door. if you plan on cutting to where the latch would be too low for your comfort, jut dont do a latch, or make it on the to pof the door, where the lock used to be. i dont ahev any pics up but when myne are doine, i shoudl ahve some.
