That mount is coming together really nicely. And not to mention those door panels buddy... I'm certain they will look awesome when upholstered.

Thanks guys!! Worked on the lower doors tonight. These panels will be directional pointing towards the front. Note the second cut is very similar to the main door design.

I honestly couldn't tell you. Typically, I get going around 2pm and work until 10-11pm so when I'm feeling good, roughly 8 hours a day 5-6 days a week. I think a pro could have knocked the job out in a month. My brain is working much slower now days.

Once again - so impressed with the level of craftmanship on this. Any concerns around weight of the final door product?

What do you plan to use for the finish on the doors? Are they going to be vinyl or painted?
Curious to see what you use to attach the different layers.

Honestly, yes. I lightened up the passenger by roughly 7 pounds while building it yesterday. I'll take some of the wood out of the driver too a bit later. Dad doesn't have a problem closing it the way it is, so it will essentially be for functionality over time.





If anyone is curious what magnets I'm using, here is the info. I bought the fornster bit from Amazon. Figured I'd only need 1 size so instead of buying a multi pack, I paid a bit more for a carbide 15mm, it was under $15.

https://www.apexmagnets.com/15mm-dia...5mm-thick-disc

15mm x 5mm = 13lb pull Power



I also covered the whole second panel with polyester resin prior to spreading.

The outside will be leather or vinyl and I'll be using contact cement to attach the material. All panels are attached with neo magnets. The panels under the main outer form will be diamond stitch on vinyl (top) and smooth no stitch lower. The armrest will be carbon fiber with insert in leather & carbon.

All too familiar with that. It is almost always a trade off between stability/endurance and weight. Anyhow it looks freaking great!
