Huntin Smoke cut the 2nd door out, added the straps and welded on the other handle.

This door warped for some reason. It stuck out about 5/16" in the lower right hand corner. Warping the doors seems to be a problem with cutting and welding tanks. We studies on-line for the best way to fix the problem. No real good solutions that we could find. We came up with a idea that worked. We tack welded the warped door to one of the feet that we cut off before. We did not tack the part of the door that we wanted to bend. We attached our homemade rod clamp and tightened it up. It bent the door in just the right spot without changing the shape of the good part of door. I haven't seen anyone else with a good fix. This worked great! Problem fixed!
