Started my half door project. body people will probably be scared but its turning out well I think. slightly differnt than most on the road...I also did not like the look or function of them being cut super low. some might argue this is not much of a cut but it should be alot better than a full door in terms of outside point of view. It will also give a arm rest since its about that right height

I spent alot of time drawing to figure out what I wanted, height, width etc. here is the rough cut


the center section I had planned just to fold over to have one less thing to cut and weld. well it didnt work out as planned. about an inch shy of what i needed. It was hard to measure the width of the door before cutting it apart.



the inside is a typical door with all the moldings and holes given for access.It would have been too hard to try and fill everything in to the very uneven inner sheet metal. i cut it all out of filled it in too.



this is where it sits now. still have to get the latch in, maybe a cup holder then weld it all. I did run out of 18guage sheet tho. my scrape piece I bought was not quite enough once I messed up the center section.

thats the best part....stock. Ill just relocate the inner handle. one. Ill shave the lock on the outside. no need for it really. OTOH I could run it but would have be buy new lock cylinders. still whats the point? you could jump in the window thats not there.

Nice job so far. Why not cut the window frame out too?
cause they look like ass that way. keeping the window frame keeps a cleaner look IMO

I like the door Dustin. Im not a huge fan of low cut half doors and I actually like the look of them with the top frame still in tact. Keep up the good work.

Why no speaker?
cause there are 4 other crappy ones in the truck. I also dont want to deal with unplugging wires to swap doors. I dont like to listen to music too loud when wheeling plus the cb and squirrls screaming is loud enough
