Didn't find the original door build video - just the sound reduction and LaSalle initial door card fitting one.
I can't play the video on my iPad. What did you use for soundproofing? The steel skins sound like a damn tuning fork when you tap them with something. I'm thinking some kind of spray on stuff so I can get as much coverage as possible

I'm not trying to dissuade you from building your own doors Jason; just allocate a good amount of time to do them correctly. I've watched plenty get built and can honestly say it takes some skill.

Go with stick on acoustic matting if you can. The spray stuff works but the mass loaded vinyl works much better. The only place I would spray stuff would be in the exterior of the wheel wells, the underside and any place I couldn't stick on a sound deadening product.

Wow, everyone's getting all touchy. I can clearly see the complexity of the project and I am ready to take it on. The biggest problem is i have to do one at a time and switch them over sice I am re using the guts. Or I can just drive around doorless

I just purchased a rear safari door from SP in the UK with a whole bunch of stuff including rear glass and a spare tire carrier and shipping was 100GBP total! Very pleased!

I also have 2 painted NTO Puma stripped doors that I have to swap out...having worked in assembly plants, if you are doing it yourself, put the hinges on and then just the latch with a string attached to the release...much easir to lift empty doors and mount, then install the guts once they are on the vehicle...put some tape on the door opening so there is no scratching....now if you have a helper, build the doors up fully and then bolt to the body...

Now is a great time to add door lock actuators and power window kits to the regulators...if of course you have push button and wind up windows...

Brian, I've often wondered about that these last few months.... considering that my Defender doors feel like wet newspaper even compared to my split, original 1965 IIa doors.

The IIa doors have 30% coverage of matting, and they are quieter, but mostly, the stuff actually makes the doors work better. Can I expect something of the same results when I use this stuff on Defender doors?
