Storing Steel Doors

OK, guys and gals...i finally scored me some soft doors for my jeep and I am very excited.

Please share how you store your steel doors. I will be storing mine in my basement and I don't want them to get all jacked up. I have heard hanging them by the window frame is bad.

So Suggestions???

Sorry, I guess I deleted most of the pics from Photobucket. there's still one good one and the material list. You could store hard doors on there. I just lined the tray at the bottom with some of that rubber type tool box liner to keep from scratching.

I hang mine by the window frame and haven't had any problems. I bought some hangers from the local hardware store and mounted them to the wall.

Here's the best pic I have:

Just get a set of old hinges from a wrecking yard and fasten them to a stud in the wall. You'll need to fold the mirrors in and set them on the hinges with the paint side to the wall but thats what I do.

That is a very cool idea, never thought of something like that.

i used the same type of hanger Scout does. hold 50lbs each and are padded. it was a great setup that kept them out of the way and off the floor. i hung them that way for 3 years.
not long after hanging them like that, i did notice that the seam where the actual thin window frame/surround meets the lower main section of the door formed a VERY small crack. it was only noticeable because that tiny amount of exposed metal rusted....we're talking tiny crack. it did that within the first year, and i still hung them for the next two years. it never caused any problems.

best picture i have of the hangers (no doors on them). i used them to store the soft top and windows when they were off too. i could put a door on a hanger and then had room to hang the soft top on one of the same hangers.
the black things are pieces of the hard side of industrial velcro. i hung the side windows from them.





(Scout..lovin the Sequia. we had to settle for a Suburban, but love the Sequia.)
