Roll up doors are not hard if you are not making them functional, Did this years ago

Evergreen slotted car siding and square stock

Used this method on this fire truck using three different sizes of siding on the roll ups

5c0dd7f670949_1992SimonDuplexMiamiHazMat3.jpg.a6f2d43ee8b9db6525835544466fdbf4.jpgI did non-functional roll up doors on this rig years ago.  I made an inner box of the scribed sheet stock and then made an outer box for the remainder.  It made painting it easy and kept things nice and neat.  it also made the body very strong.
