Re: SOFT DOORS

BUZCLEV5,

I am in the process of building a set of half soft doors for my 86. The frames
latches and hinges were the easy part. Using the same material that Bestop uses
for softops. Should have one completed by the end of next week. I'll post pictures. A friends is sewing the material to the frames for me. Had some problems with the thread twisting and not tightening, so she glued them to the
frames and is stitching them by hand. So far they look awesome.

Pros- small, lightweight, can throw them in back of zuki and run without doors but still have some protection from the elements if needed,

Cons-??

Wayne

Re: SOFT DOORS

I wanted to do the same thing. Where did you find the material? I have them built, All I have to do is find the fabric.

Re: SOFT DOORS

Bill,
The place I got the material was a local place, but he got it from a place in Denver Co.
called B-D company. Thier web address is http://www.b-dco.com .
I talked to a guy by the name of Gary Bernstein. I found out after the fact that
thier price is about half of what I had paid for the material.

BTW, I like the front bumper on that gray zuki on your tech page as well as
the transfer case skid plate. Do you have the dimensions available, if so
could you send them to me.

Thanks
Wayne

Re: SOFT DOORS

Wayne,
Thanks for the info, as for the dimensions? What do you need. It wraps around so it's a 3D thing. I don't have them on hand. I just used 4" plate and went from there and filled in the gaps! It is NWRCA tested! The bumper is my bumper that we put on my friend Jeff's Samurai for the event.

Re: SOFT DOORS

you should make some steel hard doors, just cut down a pair of samurai doors. They will still have the seal and will keep out water and mud if you play in that kind of stuff. I am happy with mine

Re: SOFT DOORS

I have both, I found Samurai doors for $35. I'm almost done with them. Almost done with the soft ones too.

Re: SOFT DOORS

We carry soft-half doors. They are great for nice weather wheeling.

Cons are that they'll let in the elements in wet wheeling.
