matt167 the body is completly custom built, so I have no doors.. I had the body built like I thought I wanted it. then after looking it over, it looked too tall, so I channeled it 6", and then the doors would have extended below the frame, so I built a 6" rocker area, and put in some peices to make rear cab corners, which are 3-4" IIRC..

trees Depends on what you are most comfortable with and what you have available. Personally, I would try to reduce the size of the metal doors you are going to replace because of reducing the size of the original openings. I am more comfortable working with metal than wood/fiberglass and I prefer the lasting integrity of metal fasteners in metal than in wood/fiberglass.

fiberglass doors on steel body?

I'm getting ready to continue working on my project after it's sat dormant for a few months.. last things to go on the body are 4 panels to enclose the new door openings ( made the door openings smaller ), and build doors... I got thinking that, it would be easier for me to get fiberglass doors 'right' faster and easier than metal doors.. by building a wood framework, fitting it to the door openings, and then skinning it with luan plywood and then fiberglass.. is this a good idea or, should I just build the metal doors?
