  Not sure if I was tlking to you about this or not, but I told someone I had 
some old doors with hinges and pillar packets I cut out of a TF truck many 
years ago, I was just waiting for whomever it was to let me know how large a 
hole was cut in the pillar so my pockets would fit.

  Do you need a door too?
