Rear doors

31 December 2011 Bodywork 1648

Why a section on the rear doors? Well, I always like a challenge, so I am going to attempt to make fibreglass rear doors. This will make it lighter and they serve no purpose so will be located using some sort of fasteners. The doors will have no handles and have a one piece window. All I know is it will not be glass but what material; e.g. perspex, polycarbonate, lexan etc. is not known at this time.

So far the handle recess has had a steel plate welded in place and smoothed over with some filler.  This has not been completed yet. The side window has been removed and a template made from cardboard. The template was transferred to plywood as this will need to be fixed into place as the doors will be made into a plug/mold for the fibreglass.
