go to vintageairstream.com. He's got instructions for making your own there. Also, Inland sells premade ones.

Door Construction

If I remember right these doors have a frame of "U" channel with the inside skin screwed to the frame. They should be fairly simple to make from scratch.
You might not even have to weld the frame since they don't have to carry any load other than themselves. I take a look tonight and check to see if I've missed anything important .
Tom.

I made a new "vintage" door for my new water heater. It just takes little time.

What are the cars in the reflection?
