Keeping dry without doors

I have created a drop down door just like the rear dust cover that shields the driver compartment from the elements. I do not like doors on my jeep and I hate the hassle of taking them off and on and putting on mirrors. When I'm ready to play I just want to go play. I use my jeep as my personal mode of transportation to work as well and it sits in the parking lot all day. In Florida we have these funny things called afternoon showers most every day. I do not want to take the time to put a cover on the jeep then have to take it off and secure it. So I created a drop down door that will roll up to roll bar and velcro, and when ready will drop down and shield the inside. it is secured with velcro straps just like the dust cover in the rear. check out my photo album if you want to see it installed. Best part is the price!!!!!

i think if you plan to go into production you should round off the windows and tapper the leading edge to flow with the lines, ascetically. People are very picky. how do they keep water intrusion out of the bottom. The pictures look like it is mounted inside, not in the lower gutter.
