    agreed, tube doors rock. I don't even own "real" doors anymore. They are to heavy, to weak, to rust prone and most of all, too opaque. ;)

    Hey Cybrfire,

    Nice style on your tubes. Did you fab yourself, or are they available for sale?

    And I wonder, since I don't have bender/welder, are tube doors available for 66 model GMs? Thanks

    Both cybrfire and Myself sell tube doors, check out the vendor section or our websites for pricing.

    Thats for a pair Rick :cool1: with mounting hardware.

    Shipping with fed ex is usually 15-30 bucks

    I dont know specifics on states but most require the bottom portion to be plated or the truck have an inner well like heeps to keep stuff from rolling out. Mirrors are required just on the driver side and rearview in CA I believe.

    Mirror kits are available and some light sheet or plate can be added across the bottom of the doors. That's one reason why I kept the lower bar so close to the body.

    would look cool with a small sheet of diamond plate on it. Just screw or bolt on for easy removal, and find a cheap mirror from local auto parts chain store. :cool1:
