Eagle One Piece Door


I manufactured this one piece door from the original two piece door. I'm not sure if it's easier to build a one piece door from scratch or to make one from the original two piece door. The framework used in the original doors is very thin and requires some additional reinforcement.

This latch and door handle setup works very good, the original Eagle door needs to be made thicker in order to mount the latch properly. (See Fast Fred's article on Coach Conversion Central for part numbers).

 

I mounted the latch and door handle close to one another to keep the rod length to a minimum. When I cut the outside handle in I realized that it was almost to close but it worked out good and the rod is very short.
