    I'm going to design some "safari" tube doors for my 72 Blazer. I was talking with an engineering friend of mine (Early Bronco guy) and we think making 1 pair is as easy to make as 50 pair. Any style or option ideas would be great. When I get mine done I'll post some pic's. About a month i figure.

    that's the style i was thinking. I was thinking if people like the pictures when i'm done I could always put them on ebay or sell them personaly and ship them bulk frieght.

    Will be interested in seeing pics. $50 sounds like a heck of a good price.

    I would be interested in some alternatives to my stock doors, but can't really say for certain without seeing some pictures. Post up pics when you get some! Thanks

    $50 Canadian, that's something like $29.50 US isn't it? Just kidding, EH! I might be interested also.

    I haven't decide on a style yet. I was origionaly thinking of building a set, by cutting some doors like in the picture posted, but then I also like the style made by the guys at DIY. Everytime I look at my truck I change my mind. I'll hopefully have a prototype by the end of summer, ya I know, great timing.
