Nice. I really like the doors. You can tell a lot of time and effort went into them.

I need to get a rear outer door skin cut that doesn't have any holes for a handle or hinges etc.... and just slightly larger so I can fab it in permanently for a pickup style buggy JK we are building or I need to find the CAD drawings, tweak them a bit and have some cut.

I would also love to buy a set of front doors from you too. we don't need fancy just durable for bashing offroad.

Let me know if you ever decide to make some to sell.

Extreme- Thank you
Up to now i have mainly only built stuff for myself, not posting here to sell anything. not sure how that would apply to forum/vendor rules etc.
i will not offer my drawings as it was a lot of work up front to create, but i will send you a pm, some rear skins would be easy to make.

sounds good. don't get me wrong. Wasn't asking for your drawings lol. Just general drawings to modify for a close out panel. I'm pretty sure there is a cad database for the JK somewhere online.

Found myself with an hour to work tonight, and the doors have been neglected, so I started on some of the 8 pieces that will make up the framework between the outer skin and the inner skin.
There's 3 different bent channels- top cap, bottom and sides (since they will have to match the curve of the outer skin, while the interior skin will be flat)
Cutting the channels is always a challenge. Have to get creative in holding it while cutting.

Two of the bottom pieces and the top cap laid out.

Wow, this is amazing work, is this a hobby or do you do this professionally? (Fabrication)

What are your plans for the Punisher skull and 1941 Jeep outlines?

Thanks, it is mainly a hobby. I work on computer shit for a living, but have always built stuff. On my current jeep, I have built the front bumper with recessed winch, rear fascia, swing out single action tire carrier, rotopax mounts, weld on sliders with the same (Willys jeep logo as shown above), aluminum rockerskins, aluminum rear corners (not finished yet), trail vise, York Oba with quick disconnects at each tire (I fill up all tires at once in 3 minutes total time). Diy spod.
I made a bunch of the Willys jeep cutout, one is in my yard, climbing over a rock, and a few will find their way on the inside of the door panels. The skull is mounted to a shop cabinet

Got the side pieces cut out, they are intentionally extra deep, so I can cut a curve into them to match the curve I put into the outer skin.

Got out the plasma and my cutting table/cart I made so I could cut the first side piece.

I got doors all over the place lol

Side piece now matches the curve that outer skin will have

Those doors are looking good, that plow though! First time I've seen a write up on building that.

Lol ^ that is probably going to be very true.
I needed to squeeze the two uprights that go between my d ring mounts, so instead of removing my swag brake from my press, I got creative

Great work. Wanna sell those first door skins? Care to share the cut file? I bought the steel to start my doors, just haven't got around to it.

Thank you! Sorry, the first set of doors are spoken for already, but other skins can be made, a finished interior, however is very time consuming.
I will not share the cut file, as much as I enjoy sharing ideas, it is like me doing your homework for you
Masonite makes for a great template for a hand plasma, just watch out for fires.

Snow plow Almost done, just need to design the kickers going back to the frame that tie into the pieces I made first that initiated the whole idea of making a plow for a lifted vehicle

Thanks anyway. I'll just make a pattern and have my friend cut it on his table.
