Most likely I will cut out my own latches, have to cad them up to cut on plasma table first.... Figuring out hinges now. On the fly design, after all I am a PAULI!

I'm not a welder, I've just always heard that galvanized steel is dangerous when heated, so you probably know better haha. Good looking doors!

Don't get me wrong, you snort the crap, you will feel like crap, for about 2-4 hrs!
Thanks, they sure take a lot of time on a cheap bender!
