FJ40 half doors?

Does anyone have some pics of half doors for FJ40's? I am hoping to make some out of the original doors that are on there right now. Anyone have any tips and tricks on how to do these?

Thanks
Dima

That's all I had saved. Lots of pics but I'm too lazy to attach them all. Sorry.

Going there this weekend to do some work. I gotta tear the top off and then turn it around and back it in. Gotta find some axles and other crap and then start chopping.

Ive made 2 sets so far for other people....
I must have lost the pics on my old computer, but the best way that I had found to seal in the top once cut was to run 1x3 in square...thin ga stuff.
I cut out the interior of the door and replaced it with 18 ga sheet and welded in a cross brace for strength (1in c channel). I made an access panel to get into the latches and handles.

I have a set in the garage if you wanna see pics. I can re take some.

Lemme know!
