New Seatbox Storage Access Panels are done Opinions Please

We've just completed the Defender Seat Box Access Panel first production run.

We did a test fit on a new seat box. Installation takes about 2 hours using the following tools:
1. Air Cutoff Wheel
2. File
3. Tape Measure
4. Sharpie
5. Rivet Gun

The kit will be supplied as 2 access panels, required number of rivets, 4 latches, 2 hinges, 2 backing plates and of course well written instructions.

Not sure of the price yet as we are still ironing out all the costs.

Please let us know if you like the idea.....

FINALLY! And you beat me to it.

Definitely a good idea, although maybe have individual doors available. As an example, I'd only do my non-battery box.

Be awfully nice to have two doors instead of one. And also have one lockable for GUNS (oops buggered it for the mud pit ay?) and stuff like that

Very cool. Would love one for the right/non battery side. I run Corbeau seats so getting in the box is a PITA right now. This mod would allow me to utilize it for some storage.

Like the others mentioned above - would be interested in just one side tho.

I personally would like a front facing door toward the footwell on the non battery side as I like to have extras but prefer it to look as close to stock at first glance. I know side is perhaps more practical for seeing what you need but in reality not that much fits in there and you would not need that stuff every day I assume so access would still be good. But thats just me.

looks great...is there clearance to charge a battery?

If you have non-defender seats and a dead battery it is a huge pain.
