Cut the aluminum for the doors, tabs are welded to the frames, getting ready to send the frames out for powder coating after the door latch arrives. I ordered a proarmor door slam latch assembly! Aluminum will be left in a brushed finish, still need to put them in my brake and make stress lines.

One less thing off the (never ending) list! Passenger seat is next (Scat Procar Terrain, and Scat may change the fabric to match the Extreme seat I have) , then Suspension will more than likely be after the seat, and then I think I want to have Web Camshafts make up a torque cam. Bottom Line, I'm still having fun!

looking very nice , congrats on yet another cool project.

how tight do the skins seal at the frame ?? will you need to use foam or silicon for gaps ?

if ya do have to seal .. foam might be the better way as silly cone will make a mess trying to remove a skin and might even grip enough to bend the skins removing.

Naw, I'm just gonna run a 1/4" air gap all around, it will still keep the big stuff out! Still waiting on the door latch, so I got some more time to screw it up! LOL

That is for sure! Once through the mud and you find out all of the spots it came in! Spend more time cleaning than we do riding (just seems like it?).

Dirt is good! I hate working on anything dirty! Try to keep it clean, plus I don't mind cleaning it.

Yes it does suck working on a dirty machine,I took my oil sending unit off the other day cause it was leaking some because I never sealed the threaded hose barbs (my fault) every time I touched something the dried dirt would fall on my face.:(

Nothing worse than stuff dropping in your face while working under it!

Starting to install the latches! Pretty nice product that ProArmor puts out. I will have to blister the aluminum where the latch fits, or just cut around it. Either way it will look good, and just a knob to push down on the release handle. Latch is bear claw design. Next is a opening limiter, small cable will work just fine!

Fairmont79 I'm really looking forward to seeing the finished product, doors are one thing I really want myself. Do you mind telling how much $ you will have in them once you're done ?

2 pieces of 3/4 conduit = 7.00 dollars, .080 aluminum sheet 2-2'x4' = 40.00 dollars, and door latch and hinges 50.00 dollars, powder coating =50.00, , should be able to do the same for a little over 100.00 dollars, spray paint finish would work just fine.
