Fabricated some barn doors.

Almost finished with my barn door conversion.
I've never liked lift-gates and and the shock mounts stripped out on me.
So what to do?

Huh? pictures not showing
Never posted images before.
Wait I got it.





Link to more photos if interested.

Re: Fabricated some barn doors.

Looks pretty clean. How many hours do you have wrapped up in that?

Not sure really, worked on it over a few summers. Maybe about 6-8 weeks solid.

Holy batman that's awesome. How's the structural rigidity? As the body flexes pretty good, can you open and close while being stlighty flexed?

Nice work! You should give us insight into the hinges and locking mechanism.

That looks pretty nice. The rear windows look a bit odd, but very nice work.

Re: Fabricated some barn doors.

Have to say, I was almost afraid to click on this thread. I was half expecting something looking like the bastard offspring of an XJ and an outhouse.

But that's some very clean work. It's not my style, but I salute your work.
