Anyone know of any opening doors for the Prowler.

Prestige motor sports makes real nice suicide doors that close secure even under harsh conditions. Mike there has been building them for a couple of years, he has done his R&D

Well the frame is made of 1" square tubing, has polyethelene sheeting on the exterior, 1/8" plate steel for the hinge plate, and lift off hinges. I made the latching system from all-thread and some springs and nuts.
It sounds like a homemade concoction of redneck proportions, but the prototypes have been on my Prowler for 8-9 months and held up great!

Another home made half door

Hey Cub, those doors look good! I went a slightly different route, by using 1/2" thick HDPE sheets (from www.modernpastics.com, about $150 for two with shipping). The hinge plate is mounted to the cage frame by a piece of 1/8" by 3" flat bar, cut and welded to mimic the chevron shape in the cage. The hinges are marine hatch hinges, which have easily-removed pins. Can't remember where I found those on-line. The latches are slam latches, or cooler latches (About $75 each from Allegis Corporation). The armrests are a piece of 1/2" plywood with two layers of closed cell pipe insulation, held in place with the fabric cover. All hardware is stainless, and I prefer to use nylock nuts. Here are links to a couple pictures:
