Not an easy task ahead of you. But those doors are really going to be unique, like no other TJ07 build.
About all I've seen on any other TJ build logs are variations on window size! I haven't seen anyone make a TJ07 custom door panel from scratch.

So, you are going to make some kind of grille or vent cut-outs in both doors, and a flush window in the left door?
And devise a method for attaching them to the unibody. I still shudder to think about it!

The door is just going to be screwed on with counter sunk screws, nothing fancy. Haha.

I haven't decided yet on the vents. I am temped to cut out horizontal slots but I am not sure. If I can get some mesh I like and find a way of cleanly shaping the mesh into a cutout I'll just go with that. As for the window. I am going to start off I think by cutting out the acrylic first, seems like it'd be easier to size the cutout around the window rather than the window around the cutout. I'm just more comfortable filing and shaping the aluminum rather than messing with the acrylic too much.
That's a good plan:thumb:
Well, the door attachment will be very straightforward then. I think the biggest chore will be figuring out the slots or mesh grills.
But you'll think of something:)

Steel isn't too bad, just more work, lol.

It's not mine, but there are a few reasons he got it. Price, warranty, looks, and the fact that it hauls ass, lol. Hemi baby. lol. He has 2 Fords though too.

Still is easier to weld, so its got that going for it...

Also lol, the #1 reason we decided people bought Dodge trucks was the looks, haha.

omg yes, lol. Welding steel is a lot easier. haha.









Still some work to do on the doors, clearly, but trying to decide now how big I want the window to be. I keep going back and forth on just big enough to see the mobo/gpu/etc then I am temped to extend it to the entire top portion pretty much in case I ever modded the bay panel to include LCDs or SSDs or anything.




Can't wait for this thing to be done, lol. I have parts scattered all over, I just want it to be done and clean the house, lol.

The thing that upsets me about looking at all these little aluminum pieces is that if I had the time/desire, I could remake all of this crap in under a day. Kind of upsetting that it's taken me this long. Granted, that's only about half the parts, but still. frown.gif

You see a lot of TJ07 builds that only cut the window wide enough to still hide the stock 5 1/4 bays, but I think it's different if you have modded bay panels. Even with the CZ panels dressing up mine, I chose to hide most of the bay side, since it was just a blank area. Nothing to see there, move along. But that's a good point you mentioned, about being able to view the sides if you were to mod the bays for ssd's or something. And your modded panels in their current configuration do look much better than the stock bays. But imo a TJ07 window does look better when it isn't cut out too large.

Just think of all the "R&D" time spent on doing those parts, that accounts for so much of it. I've spent days trying to decide simple things on mine, it just doesn't come quickly sometimes!
Yet once it's done, I ask myself why it took so long!

Yeah, pretty much set on a smaller window at this point. The more I thought about it last night the less I liked the idea of a giant window.

If I ever mod the interior I can just mod the door too.

Lots of filing, for sure!
Worth it though. The doors are similar in design to the originals, with a better window shape imo.
I would think that a simple grille should work well with the bottom cut-outs.
Still considering real glass, or sticking with plexi?

Haha, yeah baby...

Surprisingly the plexi I will be using for the window will actually be smaller than the stock one, lol. I am hoping to check out various meshes next week and see what I can find. If not I might start hunting online.

As for plexi vs glass. Will at least be initially going with plexi, I have nooooo idea how to shape glass, haha.

Much more practical to stick with plexi! The size is deceiving, as you mentioned the piece will be smaller than the original, but there's less wasted view in yours.
I noticed the lower cutouts are longer than in the stock panels. That's a good idea, since the stock mesh ones cut-off the fans a bit, with a 480 rad installed.
