interest in new 2nd row rear doors?

Just putting out a feeler here. If we were to produce extruded aluminum (no steal)door bottoms for the 2nd row (rear passenger doors) on the 110's and 130's of the 2 piece door designs who would be interested in buying them? I wanted them to produce a 110 5 door soft top. Obviously they would have to be at a reasonable price and year they would last forever. I put a similar group together to produce 101FC door tops out of extruded aluminum, so with enough interest I know it can be done.

I would be interested in a pair for my 110. It would have to be reasonable though, or I would just repair my current ones with new door channels. Will it accommodate the sliding glass top?

They would be just like the originals but have no steal in them just an extruded aluminum frame. Door tops would fit as usual

I'd be interested in the two piece doors - so long as they aren't a million bucks

It's a great idea. Too bad I just picked up my rebuilt doors a few days ago.

I have a customer with a 109 SW that would like to have it as a soft top. He's currently driving it with no roof and the full rear doors in place. Looks a little, well, unfinished.
I'm sure he'd be interested in a pair of rear half doors and door tops for all 4 doors on his 109, in aluminum.

Did not seem like like there was enough interest for a full production run. I'm just so sick of the bottom edges of all the Defender doors bubbling .....

Sometimes theres a spontaneous lineup on these type of threads for items based on a production run.
Put my hat in for a set. Maybe two sets depending on the price point.
