Wouldn't it make more sense to cut and shut two sliding doors since they already fit the profile of the side of the van? You'd need to add hinges and locks too, obviously
good call that sneddy, would the normal front door hinges work do you think, was also thinkin, usin the lock mech, from t4 rear barn doors...........:*

shopping list :ILU: :)

an ofside sliding door A:
