If it shakes and spills on your door, you're not drinking it fast enough. Foreigners

I think it's common knowledge among the professionals (drinkers). But remember it takes hard work, persistence, and skill to become a professional- just like wheeling. Hell I'm training right now

Back to the doors, though. I really like them and would definitely consider a set if they had cup holders and were a little more affordable. Oh, or if I hit the lottery then they just need the cup holders.

I can care less about doors, but I would be all over a hood.

BCzuk - I really love the idea of a full soft door. I don't know what to do about the window though, haven't searched into it yet.

Someone just sold a set of full soft doors on Zukikrawlers. There are pics posted in the for sale thread over there.

The guy that bought them is planning on reproducing them so hopefully he does and they are a decent price

I don't wanna mess with anybodys business but I bought a top grill protection from this guy:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Suzuki-Sam...item27c3b5a302

At the time he also made the half doors that you see on the pictures.
They are made from plastic, not fiberglass, and no... They don't have cup holders!

I'll make them but I'm not gonna give them away. Materials and shipping are the two biggest costs.

Out of curiosity, what's the point of a 'glass hood? Seems to make sense on a ricer or a racer, but on a crawler? What is the weight savings over a stock hood?

My understanding of it is that nice stock hoods are either rare or super expensive brand new from out of the USA. I may be wrong.
