prowler doors

Just getting started on the doors. I have removeable pin hinges to weld on door frame and got some door latches
not sure how I want the latches installed. Will try to temp install latch mechanism on prowler frame to check for interference. I plan to cover door with quarter inch ABS.

may I be so bold as suggest nutserts v/s welding .. easy to remove/repair and remount mounted items ...thinking the wood your planning to use will need replacement it your in woods or big bolder country .. just one guys thoughts

nutsert kits are not much $$ on the web .. also care if drilling the frame as there are wires going up one of the tubes [sorry don't remember which CRS here]

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

Hi Gary thanks for the reply, bolting hinges is good idea. easy to replace when they get bent. The ABS is probably the same plastic used to form the body of the prowler, hope it will standup to the trail. mostly brush here in northern Michigan. still not sure where to mount the door latches. I looked at RD's door pictures and his second set look like he mounted the latch on the outside of buggy frame. ma be where I need to set them also. Have noticed that when I get out of seat I just turn and slide which may catch latch if I mount where RD had his first set. Thanks for headsup about wires in the frame . I'll have to look before drilling. may get more done this weekend will post more as I get it done.

doors

Finally got the doors covered and mounted. Need to make A cover for the latch mechanism
so brush won't be getting hung up on it.

Thanks RD, made some deflectors to keep brush from getting hung up on the latch.

Thanks all, Gary, bolted the hinges on so when they get bent I can replace easily. and didn't run into any wires drilling into the posts.
Now to start thinking of the next project.
