homemade Half & Full doors for a gator 825is4

Here are my homemade half doors for a gator 825is4, I will build the top part for the winter to have a full cab.
Over the past 3 months I guess it took me 50 plus hours to build.
A long time but worth it!

Check the full album here: https://1drv.ms/f/s!AsVrKBrCROhZhXxnnl1BtKg8sf3E
I had no welding experience and used a Lincoln Electric mig 140 flux core.
Parts List:
3 – 20ft 1 inch x 1 inch X 1/8 inch square tubing - $60
1 – Spare angle iron, and Channel, 3/16 plate - $20
1- 4 Ft X 8 Ft X 1/4 inch HDPE sheet black - $75
4 - Bear Claw latches and door pins - $100
8 – 3inch weld on hinges - $20
4 – Black Fence Tension Band 1-7/8 inch - $5
3 cans 14 oz - POR 15 Professional use Chassis Coat Black - $90 ( This stuff is indestructible and bonds to metal)
http://www.por15.com/TOP-COAT_p_102.html
Approximate price $400
To bend the bottom radius I used a pipe bender with a homemade square tube die.
To cut the HDPE sheet I used a jigsaw with a 18tpi metal blade.

Full doors completed

Top of doors added, now have the full cab.
Not completely air tight, but much better in cold weather. Would just need to add door molding, however that would mean fogging up without a dedicated heater which maybe the next thing


All pictures added to original album https://1drv.ms/f/s!AsVrKBrCROhZhXxnnl1BtKg8sf3E[/URL]

3 – 24ft 1 inch x 1 inch X 1/8 inch square tubing - $60
2- 4 Ft X 8 Ft X 1/4 inch HDPE sheet black - $150
1- 4 Ft X 8 Ft X 1/4 inch Lexan - $200
40ft of windshield molding FAIRCHILD(0600-25) - $150
2 cans 14 oz - POR 15 Professional use Chassis Coat Black - $60
Approx $650
So overall for full doors a little over $1000 compared to $5000 from JD.
