Are you going to put a rear window in too? ie: out of a truck bed cap or something?

I feel like you are trying to twist your unibody.

What I'm planing on is to skin the door so its just the outside skin, and cut the door at the top right below the window line, so they will be some kinda high half door but will be very light and still have the mirrors.

So I'm just making some half door skins ... well see how it turns out .. its worth a shot.

Man honestly I have been door less for 2years strait now and in FL its really not to bad at all. Its a little cold in the winter but its fun ... its like skiing ..
and I love driving in the rain ... and worst comes to worst and I have to drive to work in the rain I just though my cloths in a bag and change when I get there.

even when if the half doors turn out well and I keep them, I still will have no windows ... ... i guess im a little crazy but it works for me

That was my plan .. but it sucks with the doors on .. Its way better with them off ... I feel like im stuck in a tin can ..


I would drive a bike a every day but I would end up dead for sure ... so its doorless for me

Yea I can't wait to see how it turns out.

Kind of funny because Genright makes, tech wise, some really ligit stuff. So when they said its a "cooling fan" I though holy crap thats such BS .. just tell the truth and say its $50 more than the PSC pulley because its ricer blue (which I still would have got it) ... BUT even when I just spin it in my hand I can feel A LOT of air movement. I was really surprised. I kind of want to test the temp of the PS Fluid before and after and see if there really is any change in temp .. maybe I should check before I call genright out on their ricer pulley ..
