We've been busting our asses designing doors for the RZR. OK Dave has been busting his ass and I've been helpin :D Seen several examples of doors out there, but we think we got them all beat....handily. One dude is selling doors that are a square piece of plastic with 1 galvanized fence hinge holding it on:bs:

So here is our final product! Now we can get to the Teryx and Rhino stuff :buford:

Side view, we really wanted to make the doors look like oem equipment. Kind of like you want the addition to your house to look like it was built that way originally. I think we nailed it...

http://www.rafab.dreamhosters.com/thh_gallery/d/2141-1/Door1.jpg

Instead of 1 galvanized fence hinge, we tied the stationary part of the doorframe into the RZR frame right at the roll bar mounts.

Like an old Lincoln Continental, we went with the suicide door design

http://www.rafab.dreamhosters.com/thh_gallery/d/2144-1/Door_Open.jpg

For our latching mechanism, we went with a slam latch that has a deep shank. Slams shut real easy and pulls open easily as well. Should stay closed in a slower rollover, if you high side at 45 all bets are off...

Sorry, Teryx is next... If I had my druthers we would have done Rhino's 1st cuz there are more of those than RZR's/Teryx combined x2. Just having trouble getting a Rhino in the shop to work on. All my Rhino buddies are down South :vik:

As luck would have it (bad for him, good for us) a guy we know was life flighted out of Sand Mountain Nevada Memorial Day weekend after rolling his Rhino (he's going to be OK). Alcohol was involved :rolleyes: We'd LOVE to buy a smashed up Rhino at a bargain price and bling the shit out of it. Speaking of bling, I just picked up a full White Carbon Fiber body from Maier for a customers RZR and the stuff just looks BITCHIN! They also supplied us with perfectly colored large flat sheets of UTV plastic for our doors :cool: Damn Maier has come a LONG way since I was at there tiny little warehouse space in the early 80's! Talk about a success story :buford:

Well, since you don't have a wrecked one, you are more than welcome to bling mine out and take all the pictures that you want. I will agree to let you keep the Rhino for as long as you need, and will agree to ride it in the desert for all to see, handing out your brochures that I will make free of charge, to all those that ask.
So, do we have a deal?

DEAL! and we'll only need the Rhino for about a year and a half :pirate:

Can't wait to take it night racing at Spot X with Jeff!!!

At Factory UTV we leave no stone unturned. Since yours will be our prototype for Rhino's we'll need to fully test for fit finish and functionality. Year and a half should do it I'm thinkin...

Jeff, mount up _ _ _ _ _ _ Damn it I can't remember the third word :vik:

Good gawd man, which part of fully testing for fit finish and functionality are you having the most trouble with? Tell you what, maybe we can get her back to you in 17 months and I promise to test your suspension thoroughly in the deep whoops :buford:

Thanks!! Just hoping the venture provides my two kids with viable full time jobs. Nothing much will change for me. Luckily we already owned the majority of the equipment needed so we recouped our original minimal investment early on. Now the venture will thrive or fail on it's own... Dave and I ran the same type of business in the 80's and it's funny how much more you know 25 years later. The internet is an amazing tool as well, 99% of our business back then was local racers and duners, 95% of our business now is outside the state of California! You might say our audience has increased slightly :eek:
