Since I’m waiting for bearings to arrive ( everything is closed for a holiday this weekend) And I had a free Sunday I decided to attempt making a pair of steel half doors for my M38.

Kept it simple, using 3/4” square tube and some piano hinges, made a template of the door opening out of cardboard which I will use later to make door skins out of some 11 ga sheet metal. Using the template I built a frame that fit inside the door opening, using some existing holes in the tub to mount the door and I will fab up a latch once I have the door skinned. I will make the door skin bigger than the opening by about 1” so I get some sort of seal.

So far I’m into the half door project for $30 in material and such and 4 hours of my time.
