ive seen carbon fibre / fiberglass doors and bonnets online.

some with glass windows, some with polycarb 

 

Doors:

1) are they legal on road cars? or is it just track use?

2) will they affect insurance? 

3) are they safe? 

 

 

general thoughts and ideas/pointers greatly recieved.

 

thanks guys

-Yes they are legal but used only with a roll cage with door bars is a no brainer to me
-Yes could affect it, any mod needs declaring
- See above. No without a cage

Id agree on personal preference - seems like the safe thing, especially the door bars idea, cage within a cage sort of thing
