Half Door Compilation- Sept. 2016- with pics!

Got sick of searching for inspiration to make half doors, so I copied all the links I could to make a single post with all the ones I could find. Links included where I found find build treads or descriptions. Hope it helps. Thanks to plug ugly for starting the list.

I have to believe there comes a point and time when the mod you're doing is going to make such a small difference that you can just say screw it and simply run without doors.
DocWolf and MATCHBOX like this.

I had a set of tube doors made by circle s industries which is a local (central Indiana) fab shop.



They bolt to the stock hinges and use a separate door striker which a nut plate was welded into the door opening for.
I think the best looking ones for a 78/79 have at least something that continues the line that is made by either the dent or the chrome trim.

Also as to the above some states are more anal about rules then others, they may have to have a lip on the floor to run doorless, Much like how a Jeep has that bottom 2-3" of the body shell right there, even with the door off. I do agree though that its a lot of work for very little difference between no door and 7/8 door

Agreed- I wonder if that door adds any kind of structural integrity- hard to imagine it does.

Those are really nice- love the tube door look, so I'm still undecided between the two but I picked up a set of decent doors just in case.

gadawgz71, here is an example of what you can do with the bazillion wire. CWbronco made pigtails for easy quick disconnect. Use the link below and go to post 325.
