Doors

Was watching Outdoor Channel's Top Truck Challenge last Monday and say this little Suzuki Sumurai with the type of doors I want to make. Was much better views on TV as you could see the door opens. Here is a site of some still pics http://www.fourwheeler.com/top_truck_challenge/2010/129_1006_ttc_10_tow_test_ryan_knoche_1990_suzuki_samurai_buggy/photo_10.html

That thing sure looks like it would go anywhere. Love the big tires. The door coverings is almost exactely what I am going to do except like you said they need to swing open. I figure I can make swing open doors that are just as strong as welded in. I also want mine to go all the way up to protect the shoulder and head from side intrusions. I'll even have expanded metal covering them. When I was mountain biking with a friend of mine, we were 8 miles in, he fell and landed on a stob. It penetrared his side just under his arm pit and punched through pushing his lung in and breaking off inside. I'm at a point in life where life couldn't get better and I don't want to ruin it because I'm assuming it won't happen to me. Only problem is that the more I protect myself the wilder I get so it probably isn't making me any safer.

Lenny, on my computer I can blow up the pics. In the second pic I can clearly see a hinge on the two rear tubes of the door with the latch near the firewall. They built them as suicide doors. The side & head protection is stationary.

I went back and looked. Yes, you can clearly see the hinges.

Enjoyed seeing it again. Evidently he didn't have a tubing bender when he did the upper rear roll cage but he still did a nice job, I like it.
