    Might try in the vendors forum. 4x4Iron might be making some, ORD might be making some. Most of us make our own. I got the parts for mine from another member and modified the kit to suit my needs.

    Welcome To CK5!

    Actually I just starting making tube doors, I have a few different designs I'm working on. Tomorrow I will post up some new pictures for you.

    If you use the search feature you will find some pictures, you could also look for pictures from members Trustyk5 and spoolnaround I think you can find some door pics in there too.

    Jesse

    edit: looks like rene beat me to it hahaha

    I try not to miss an opportunity to whore my pic's...:D

    If you start building and selling tube doors and stuff you might want to contact Steve regarding the vendor package.

    One thing I'm going to do with mine is get some snap on vinyl covers so I can run them with less hassle here. Mirrors too of course.

    Well heres the pictures I promisedAnd to answer a few questions...

    I use gate latches, work great, a little tight, but these are prototypes.

    Rene It's all in the works.

    Keep an eye on the VENDOR and FREEBIE forums

    4x4 Iron makes them. I don't think they have any pictures of them on their website, but I'm pretty sure folks here do.
