    I am thinking about getting some carbon fiber doors made for my 73 street car , I have a set of glass doors now ( that fit roll up windows ) that weigh 10lbs each and had a freind in the composite business help me beef up the hinge and latch area with carbon fiber , when we got looking at them we discovered they would not actually be very hard to make our own complete carbon copy's of the origional doors my thought would be before going to all the effort I had better ask if anyone knows if there is someone already making them I can buy from .

    My carbon fiber doors are from Hairy's Glass.

    Absolutely no clue if they will do what you want, but my stuff is excellent quality!!!
    Ask if what they have will work for your plans??

    Why, it's going to be a small fortune to loose maybe 5 pounds..... put the money into upgrades...

    Yes if I had the extra cash I would have everything but the trunk lid on my car.

    could you share how you got the fb ones to fit the roll up window? and if you make this switch would you be open to selling your glass doors?
    thanx - Mike

    They were already made to fit the windows when I got them , looks like they were copied from orig style doors the only thing I did was reinforce the lock and hinge areas with carbon fiber , yes I will probably sell these ones , I will have to think on what I want for them and will post em in the for sale section when I come up with a price
