Made an unbreakable Lexan door panel
Well my idea worked for the Lexan door panel. Took some 1/8" Lexan to my buddies shop in Knoxville and cut a panel out on the pin router with all the keyhole slots and other holes for handles, window crank & door strap bolts. Took all of 10 minutes! Got home and used the stock pins to install it just like a standard panel. Perfect fit! Now I need to pick up some vinyl and glue it on to finish it. It should look trick since it uses the stock mounting pins, hidden from view. Plus it won't break apart like the stock "cardboard" panel when you tug on it to remove it to service door parts. Now I gotta find some rear & tailgate panels to use as a patterns since my truck is missing them and I'll make them all. (I got alot of Lexan wonder if I should make some to sell for half the price of those ABS ones?) I'll keep you guys posted on how it all comes together.
