I posted this in my slider thread, but figured it may get noticed better here....
So what do you guys think about these with the plating? They were designed for a DCSB and dude was worried about his dog getting a leg through an open one.
I'm not a fan of completely plated sliders, I just don't like the entire slider plated in, and thought about filling these in entirely with 2 or 3 dimple die holes right at the driver & passenger door, but chose to plate only the rear door area on a DCSB for safety and functionality.
This way you get the open slider look up front, with the added luxury of plating in back for kids, dogs, passengers, etc.
Personally, I like them a lot, and don't think the plating would jump out at you since the angle of the sliders hides just about everything except the outer tube anyway.
The last pic is to show what a "dimple die" hole looks like.
