    WHEEEE first of the month so I can show off my bad skills to you!

    http://www.off-road.com/chevy/tech/tubedoors/

    I'm a filthy defector I know, but I have a neat corporate logo on my pics!!

    The how to is really simplistic, but........ shut up about it already

    Anyway enjoy

    I'm going to use J**p hood latches for mine along with an adjustable padded stopper (similar to hood adjustment cushions)

    E-town baby!
    Austin Hardware sells a rotary latch very similar to OEM and they work well with the stock striker bolts. I beleive the model number is U-300...

    That's what I have on my tube doors and they can be slammed shut like a regular door. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Nice job on the write up Joe!
