It was a pain cutting the sheet metal. All I had was an angle grinder with 4.5 cut off wheel. Not sure if the plasti dip will hold up. Might have to peel and paint it.

Officially finished my doors. Got my red 550 cord in the mail Friday. 100' for $10 off amazon. Hopefully have enough to make grab handles. Had to mash the chrome covers with my hammer. They were to narrow to cover the 550 cord. After a quick hammering the screwed right on and covered it perfectly.

I have to tell you ..... those are some really sweet doors. The inserts looked great by themselves but the matching cord door straps really make it special. Nice job
