Where are you located? Shipping can make them expensive.

The folding frames donít take up much space, I shipped some to Idaho? I think?! It wasnít bad.

On the other hand if you buy the escutcheon plates and handles they arenít difficult to build. You just need good dimensions.

Of course you have a great start. The top and bottom rod holes in the windshield frame and door opening!

Have you perused my mjeeps album for canvas tops?

If you get the rods and bows installed and you have your windshield hinge bracket and the cowl sides canvas grip strip it should be fairly easy to fabricate a pair of doors.
