I am (tentatively) planning to install a pair. Any idea if the guy plans to make a fiberglass rear door?

Update:

I asked if they plan to make a rear door. Here' the response;

Hi, we do plan on moulding a Safari door replacement, but as of yet, we have had no time to do it! Orders are keeping us so busy these days, but we will try to crack on with that as well. Thanks, Mike

I emailed back & said I'd definitely be interested in a rear door.

I'll let you know if I hear anything else.

Cheers,

Paul.

It would be nice to see an actual review.

I'm really not keen on the CSM construction, especially given the price.

$375 is not that bad, considering a new "metal" door is 265.00

Well... if you see Dave's post

http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...ad.php?t=53793

The door alone is $375 and a complete door with all the parts is $1520. Maybe you can save the $250 paint job.

It is a good price. I have the original doors, but they need to be taken apart and redone with new aluminum and galvanizing. That'll take forever and cost mucho $$$$. These could be a good temporary solution.

Drunk posting is ok. Drunk driving isn't.

Anyone tried the fiberglass doors yet? I'm going to add sliders so side protection isn't a big issue.

I'd love to buy a pair, but 1) I'm hoping they also make a rear door so I can buy all three and 2) I have other priorities on my Ninety.
