My buddy had the bender and he had done enough of them that he had it down to an art. You lay your pipe out for both top rails (driver & pass side), then messure and mark bend location. Then he knew exact number of pumps to get desired bend. Then repeat process for bottow rails just different measurements and number of pumps. If you are making doors for YJ, they are exactly the same all you do differently is order latches for a YJ, not TJ. The mounting location for the mirrors is nothing more than flat metal stock. I drilled and tapped three holes for the OEM bolts and mirrors to attach to....
The hinge is nothing more than round solid metal stock with a shorter piece of same welded as a spacer. When you get ready to build, I'll be happy to shoot some close up photos for you.
Forgive my spelling.... I ain't smarter than a 5th grader :-)
Just bought my first jeep and have done this so far:
Painted my fender flares with Krylon Fusion Black, replaced my turn signal switch and replaced blown fuses (found that the previous owner stored illegal "rolled herbs" underneath the fusebox behind the glove compartment ) and gave her a much needed oil change.
Any more info on how you did this - what size/type pipe, what pipe bender, which latches, etc? That's pretty sweet.
I was noticing the metal around the latch on the Best top doors..... this addresses the weak link in my doors is that if you slam the door enough, you have to bend it back into place .... not a big deal, but a metal strip or a section of flat metal like the Best Top doors have would make these suckers perfect.
i pulled the backseat, pulled the carpet, and washed the tub. im leaving the backseat out for a couple days cause i like the look but the carpet is staying out forever, bed lining is third on my list to do

Get some pipe, a cheap pipe bender from Harbor Freight and a couple latches from Quadra Tec and make your own Safari doors....... I even move my factory mirrors.
Don't get this next comment wrong, those look great, and I'd be more inclined to run those than off the shelf, same as everyone else parts simply because they're hand made, unique, and way cool, BUT, a pipe bender isn't actually needed, is it? Just miter/weld the lower rear corner. I might have to make a set out of 1.5" tubing. Would give me an excuse to buy a notcher
