Doors when removed....

What do you guys do with your doors when you take them off the Jeep to prevent them from being damaged? I was thinking of designing a rack to hold all four doors in CAD. Something that I could roll around my Jeep easily and would store the doors in an upright position. Gonna use tubes off a laser burnt base plate with foam pool noodles to keep from scratching the paint. Just wondering if a rack like this already exists and what others are doing when they take their doors off.

I attached a concept of what I'm thinking. Still gotta take dimensions off the doors though.

I set 'em in my garage on a few pieces of cardboard to keep 'em off the floor and sometimes throw a couple old t-shirts over the top to keep them from getting scuffed against the walls.

then you can run a bungee with a spring clamp and hold the side windows up as well.

I use similar to the brackets above. Except I just used the some white 10"x12" L-Brackets for shelving (even cheaper than the ones above) then put plumbing insulation on them and screwed them fast to the wall. didnt even use wood to mount them to the wall. Just drywall anchors.

Mine are on the floor on towels in the garage. But I'm going to get a set of these for my 2 door. Below is a link to the 4 door hangers.

I forgot I paid that much. I better get a streak of ambition and mount them.
