HALF DOORS

Got to working on my half doors today.
Fireranger18 and I went to my grandfathers junk yard saturday and loaded his trailer down with goodies, i got doors and firefighter18 got a dana 35 TTB and driveshafts and a skid plate for his gas tank, my grandfather was in a good mood so we lucked out and got it all free we just had to pull it.

This door is nowhere new done but here it is so far im not sure if the cut is really what i want so i may go lower and further toward the front with it plus i am going to paint it the same color as the truck and close the top and side any opinions on what i should do on the cut.

give me a min i have to load the pictures on my other computer this one wont let me

How can you honestly say a 6 inch sounds better then anything else? It's all about the speaker itself, not the size.

I like the doors. More pictures of your truck, please!
