Door assembly is important to get it strong for gabriel gas lifts

Must use the high quality hinges for all those heavy obstacles

At rear of cab we use a sliding door, at back safety glass.

On the vehicle side open, looks like this on the inside.

Dis netjies; ek was die naweek by Gerbers 4wd (Pomona) en hulle cabs is soortgelyk - die dakrak se ontwerp verskil effe
Ek oorweeg dit egter om aan ten minste 1 kant 2 ipv 1 "deurtjie" in te sit, moontlik beide kante
Hoe open die skuifvenster - vanaf die canopy se binnekant?
Pryse op die IFS en SFA asb
Thanx
