They take sum time and tools ive cut them by hand with cutters, and water jets and jig saws and other tools.

I try to only charge the cost of stuff to make them because it is for fellow jeepers. I can do a set of doors for 250-300 depening of the thickness of metal and type

Depends on the gauge (thickness) and size of the sheet.

i did diamond plate on just the bottom carpeted part of the door panels on my 95, cut out for the speakers and put grilles on them. i"ll try to remember to get some picks.. yours are awesome though, might go that way with the comanche i just bought!

+ for originality. A unique idea. For me I think it is too much, but I DD drive mine. I would like just the lower half where the speaker was. Sort of protection from your feet as you get in and out.

Ever consdier a gauge Bezzle out of it?
