Luis, you can find all the types of wires you want and gauges at your local craft store.

Bryan, we need our daily dose of eye candy.

these doors are a little tough to cut out, theyre pretty thin along the top and the curve at the "A" pillar.......i almost have one cut out, then i gotta do my favorite thing.......make hinges! grrr! LOL these hinges wont be bad, theyre straight, so not as tough as a door with compound curves....
