Bart you are doing some great work man. Those hinges are looking Killer. I do have to ask did you make them out of plastic or brass? Can't wait to see your next progress update. Keep up the great work.

Ewaskew, Prostreet and Tyrone, thank you all for the complements it is greatly appreciated. Any time that I can inspire or help someone step it up that next notch based on my work I feel blessed.

Prostreet, anytime that I can help just ping me and I will do my best.

Thanks Chris for the complement on the hinges. So the hanger on the chassis is Piano Wire (steel rod .039") bent in a 90 degree angle. Then the hinge on the door is styrene .080" styrene rod, drilled out with a .039 drill bit. Then took some .040 styrene rod and welded it to the .080 tube I made. Drill my holes into the door and insert and weld to the door, then put a 3rd leg from the .080 tub out to the side of the door. Very sold for being styrene!

Bart... thank you for explaining how you did it. The work is very nice and taking notes for my planned pro mod build. trying to find the best way to do hinges for it. Very nice work with the styrene. So I am assuming that with the piano wire you are using epoxy to glue the 90 degree bent rod into the styrene chassis??

Welcome any time Chris! Ya I will probably use Epoxy due to it having a longer curing time. CA is just to quick, unless I head over to the hobby store and get the slow curing CA glue.

Thanks Joe! I think patience is a virtue and wonder if I have enough of it at times. :D

Please excuse the bad pictures, due to taking them in the evening and poor lighting I may need to take some better ones. But I wanted to share this small update.

I made my own Photo Etched Aluminum door handles and the drivers side actually is functioning now, just need to add the spring. This way it will spring back into its original position when not held. When I cut out my 4" Hole in the plexi window and add the trim ring, it will just finish this door off really nicely.

Bart that is just plain Awesome!!! I have to agree with Joe... any pics of the inside. Would love to see how you make the working door handles. I may have to borrow your idea for them one day. Keep up the great work. Love seeing updates on this. Thanks for sharing with us.

Thanks, Joe and Chris for the complements... Now a magician never shows how he does his tricks... :D Let me wrap up some of the rough edges on the inner door panel and get the spring pinned and in place. Then I will shoot some final pics of the door with the latch plate installed and let you see the inner workings/guts. It isn't rocket science, as I always say, due to using the "KISS" (Keep It Simple Stupid) method. :)

Because once completed the door panel will be all welded shut and I wont have access to take it back apart. So I tried to limit as much as possible the working parts.

Awesome Bart... Look forward to the pics. Thanks. I have to agree with you on the whole "keeping it Simple" theory, makes it much easier too.

Thanks Robert! And to think that it was your fault that spawned the whole Tube Chassis building, from your "Chassis 101" thread! I have just taken your basics and just built onto it from there with Reference Pics.

So I have to say, a BIG Thank You goes out to you as well.

..... As I get my shovel out to pry your jaw off of the floor and the wet mop to clean up the drool... as I don't want to slip and fall as I might break something. :D
Thanks Steven for the complement.

I appreciate it Scott, I am glad that I am able to show case some of my many talents and share with others on this Board. I just wanted to say that I enjoyed getting to talk to you at the KC Slammers a couple months back. I have to say your new PE parts you are putting out are really nice, now I just need to put them to use on my 66 Nova project. :rolleyes:
