Hi All:

The half-doors look to me to be fabbed from a sheet of alum. diamond plate.

Regards,

thanks for all the replys, sadly i would love to say that i built this car but i didnt, i had all intentions of buying one and modding it my self but when this rig came up it was to good an oppertunity not to take, also due to work commitments i dont have a great deal of time to spend working on it, as it is i drive this one and then i guess like everyone else fix everything that broke or doesn work any more after trips out.

Hello Darren,
Did a fair bit of trail biking with ER185 and XL250 between 1983 and
1987 during my stay in Sydney. 2 trips into Katoomba area and
return again in 2003 with family visiting the 3 "SISTERS" and cable
car ride.... Most of my biking in Surry-Broken Hills and down south
in Sutherland.

Now mainly 4 wheeling in Malaysian Rainforest. Started off with
long wheel based in 1999 and now in SWB with BJ40 since 2006.

Anyway, it is a good rig you pick-up...

regards,
HelimanBD.
